My top issues

Government Spending/Taxation

Government Spending/Growth is out of Control. PERS Benefits = Contributions + Earnings. When earnings "tank, " contributions must increase to stay solvent OR the UAL (Unfunded Actuarial Liability) grows. 

The Taxpayer should not "bailout" the PERS system. The public employees unions should make up the contribution shortfall. That would be MOST beneficial to their membership.

Trying to tax business is wrong approach, only makes revenue decrease as they move their business (and jobs) out of State.  No public funding of abortions.

Education

Public Education needs competition. Put Parents back in control of Education with a Voucher good at any Public/Private School. Dedicate  half of General Fund to Counties to Fund Education Locally.

Business Climate

Eliminate taxes on Businesses in Oregon and make Oregon a Business Magnet. More Private Sector Businesses/Employment, less Government Employment = More Prosperous Oregonians.

One out of Six jobs in Oregon are Government employment, this is unsustainable.

Natural Resource Management

Natural Resource based businesses:  Farming, Ranching, Logging, Mining, Fishing need to be encouraged by State, less regulated. Counties should manage the People of Oregon's Land within their jurisdiction.

First and Second Amendment Issues

Everyone's Right to Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Worship must be protected. Violent, Destructive protest is criminal, not protected "speech." The right of the People to keep and  bear Arms shall not be infringed. I am a Pro-life Christian Conservative.

Immigration

US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, paragraph 4 states: The Congress shall have Power to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization. This Right has been given to the Federal Government by the States. Immigration is a Federal Issue. States and cities who claim to offer "santuary status" are acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally.
