Welcome

Thank you for considering me for the job of your representative in the Oregon legislature.

I believe the role of a candidate is to explain what they believe, so that the electing public may predict how — and know why — the candidate would vote if elected. Therefore, my campaign is about political principles and how they apply to important issues of public policy.

I will not waste your time with the kind of content-free political platitudes you typically hear from candidates. Of course I love mom and apple pie, want our kids to get a good education, and think there should be more jobs — but those beliefs do not distinguish me from my opponents, and do not inform you of my political philosophy. I won't waste your time.

I invite you to read my candidate statement and issue papers. If you would like to know more, please contact me. I want to be responsive to your concerns, and I will post additional issue papers based on your questions.
