Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead

This website is provided for you. It is a one-stop resource for our campaign for the Oregon House (District #20). Our hope is to give you and your family the information needed for making your choice this coming election day.
2014 will be remembered as the most important election of our time. Because of partisanship – hyper-partisanship in many cases – our national politics appears to be mired in the mud. State government is struggling to deliver critical services necessary for good schools, a healthy environment, and a vibrant workplace.
This year we will determine what government is, what it should do, and how government may or may not be a partner for 21st Century achievement. This year we will make the choices that will define the realities for generations to come.
I am running for the Oregon House of Representatives because I believe Oregon should: guarantee opportunity for all our citizens; provide a safe environment; protect our basic rights to think, to act, and to live without fear; and promote the future even as we provide in the present. I am running because we need leaders with the courage to act and a proven record of facilitating progress.
There will be many candidates seeking office in 2014. However, there will be no other candidate – running for the Oregon House of Representatives in District 20 – that is better prepared for the rigors of serving you in the Oregon Legislature. Government is not merely a collection of services: it is not just a business. Government is a relationship of people and place working in common cause. Government is a public trust responsible for facilitating progress.
After you review the available options we ask you to consider the following measurements: public service, leadership, and experience. 2014 is the time for us to fight for the Oregon we know is possible. We need people with a record of public service, demonstrated leadership skills, and proven experience – now is not the time for “on-the-job” training.
If you believe our community is worth your talent, time, and treasure we invite you to join us on this march for progress. Together we can change the world, at least our part of it. If you want to know more information call us, email us, or show up at any of our events. This campaign is about you – and about the community you seek.
