1. To an outsider, how would you describe the region you wish to represent? What is it like geographically, economically, politically and socially?Oregon is heaven on earth, the most beautiful and diverse State I have ever lived in. From the longest sunny day city of Bend Oregon to the most Mediterranean weather like city of Gold Beach, we enjoy everything in-between. With two mountain ranges running through the State, Rookie’s and the Green mountain ranges, we enjoy forest and high mountain beauty. Our farm land is some of the richest in the US providing a food basket that should be the core of the State economy. The coast provides recreation and fishing opportunities second only to Alaska on the west coast. Our music and culture is as diverse as the land it’s self with everything from blue grass to opera and Shakespeare to community theater.2. When did you decide to run for this office, and why?I’m tired of watching politicians’ care more about getting elected, than caring about the people that voted them into office. I’m tired of the lack of leadership and fundamental understanding of business and economics. I’m tired of politicians’ making laws for special interest groups instead of simple and fair laws that apply to everyone and are enforced the same for everyone.3. How much will your primary campaign cost (please be specific)?$2,000 dollars so far. I’m always open to donations if you would like to help out.4. Who are your key endorsements from within the Mid-Valley?Too many to list but here are some of the donators to my campaign: Bart Carter, Misty Carter, Blair Karen Grames, Brian Lathen, Family Focus Eye Care, Jef Morre, Deborah Morre, Jim Heder, Larry Jenny Gates, Travis & Heather Taylor, William Hyde, Mike Payne.5. Have you ever been convicted of a crime, been disciplined by a professional licensing board/organization or had an ethics violation filed against you? If so, please give the details.No6. Have you ever filed for bankruptcy, been delinquent on your taxes or other major accounts, or been sued personally or professionally? If so, please give the details.No7. Why should people vote for you? What separates you from your opponent(s)? Be specific. We can all agree that the economy is the number one issue facing Oregon today. When it comes to creating jobs we need people with real business experience to make that happen. We have already seen politicians with educational, government employment and community coordinator
