A personal welcome from Jim
I want to thank you for visiting my website! Being sent to Salem to serve on your behalf was one of the most honorable positions I have ever held, and I thank you for your trust.
As a life-long resident of Yamhill County, I intimately understand our community’s issues and the importance of strong representation in Salem. As a small business owner, I know firsthand the effects of this recession and I fought the culture in Salem that all too often seems to treat taxpayers like ATM’s.
I have always felt that the only cure for unemployment is a job, and that through an expansion of family-wage employment we can solve many of our state’s problems.
We must remain resolute in restoring Oregon as a “right to work” state. We must remember that we are in competition with forty-nine other states for business. If we continue to chase away business, then bolder and more economically viable states will win for themselves the prosperity that could have been ours. We owe it to ourselves and to our children to get back to work and pass legislation to enable industrious innovation and expansion of our economic horizons.
Together, we can re-build Oregon’s economy through a restoration of thrift spending on government programs, practical and invigorative pro-business policies, capital enterprise, and an unyielding desire to succeed.
