Yesterday was the filing deadline in Oregon for candidates seeking the nomination of a major party. As the only Republican to file for House District 38, it's onward to the general election this November.
But this election isn't about Republicans, Democrats, or Independents. This election is about rebuilding Oregonians' trust in the government that is supposed to serve us. This election is about sending people to Salem who will work together to address our shared problems, regardless of party or other labels that can divide us. This election is about electing individuals who recognize the growing divisions in our society, and who will work to bridge those divisions. This election is about putting people into office who don't simply vote the way special interests aligned with their party tell them to vote, but who instead listen to individuals and small businesses who are not politically connected.
In the coming weeks and months I'll be updating this website with more detailed information regarding where I stand on issues, as well as providing regular updates on the campaign. I hope you'll consider volunteering for me, or otherwise supporting my campaign. And if you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss any ideas you have for how we can do better as a state, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
