We voters put a lot of trust in those we choose to represent us. The quality of life in our communities and our state largely depends on those officials.
My former student, Paul Evans, is currently a candidate for the Oregon House of Representatives. Two decades ago in my history class at Western Oregon University he showed a keen interest in both U.S. and world history. After graduation, he used his knowledge in places such as Latin America, the Middle East and the United States. He always sought to build better nations and communities.
Based on Paul’s background and integrity, I am confident that he can lead us successfully to confront the challenging times ahead. He will strive with all his power to represent us and the state of Oregon.
