Safety and Security

IT STARTS LOCALLY!  I have a solid Law Enforcement background within my family. P.C. should stand for Protecting citizens, not political correctness. Government is not designed to be our provider. Recent reminders tragically show that rural communities are not immune, so we too have to wisely diminish the odds of possible terrorist and crime related…

County Government Business – Budget & Spending

IT STARTS LOCALLY!  Sadly we have seen at the National level the result of Life Time Politicians and their “out of spending”; Representatives who are loyal to special interest, their donors, and lobbyist.  I am working tirelessly to help protect our Tax Payer issues.

Reclaiming our Public Lands

IT STARTS LOCALLY!  Of course we have to work closely with state and federal governments; however, we are not their subjects. They are locking us out of our own lands. Rural areas have to show courage in respecting, but continually challenging powerful Federal Agencies in those areas that especially are restricting our economy. Certainly…

Economy and Jobs

IT STARTS LOCALLY!  If we do our part for the economy, many of our other concerns will generally improve. Government cannot create jobs. Those opportunities must come from the Private Sector. We are resource rich in Oregon, but over-regulation from both the State and Federal levels obviously and unfortunately have limited investors and investments….
