THE NEED FOR TRUE INDEPENDENCE IN POLITICS HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER
 

I’m so convinced that the two-party system in Oregon is polluting the political process and standing in the way of real solutions that I decided to take the much more difficult path of running for office outside the traditional system. 

Some will claim they’ll act in a nonpartisan fashion when elected.  This may or may not be true, but as long as they have a Party full of special interest groups and donors watching their every move, it’s going to be very difficult for them to follow through on that pledge.  As most of us understand, the system is set up to perpetuate the “us vs. them” political fight and exclude others from the process. 

 

The reason you should vote for me is simple.  I have experience on the job, know what needs to be done, and will be free from any political shackles when I take office.  I intend to show Oregonians what a functional and transparent Secretary of State’s office can look like. 

 

I humbly ask for your vote.
