Please limit your response to each of the following questions to about 75 words.
1.To an outsider, how would you describe the region you wish to represent? What is it like geographically, economically, politically and socially?
 Economically, my district is heavily dependant on agriculture, and represents one of the most important regions for this industry in Oregon. From farms to nurseries, and all related vendors, it is a huge engine of economic productivity. Oregon is of course a gorgeous state and our geography from the view from the top of Mt Angel to the Abiqua Creek contribute to its beauty. There are of course extreme political views, as in every Oregon community, but my district is blessed with a calm conservatism fortified by friendly families and individuals.
2.When did you decide to run for this office, and why?
 After being appointed to serve the second term of the late Mac Sumner in 2007, I decided to run for this office and this will be my fourth time presenting myself to the district for reelection. I believe that many times we move things in Salem by “inches not miles,” but it is still very much worth the effort.
3. How much will your primary campaign cost (please be specific)?
 A late filing primary opponent will cause a higher campaign bill. It is difficult to be specific under the compression of such a short primary, but I expect it to run well above $100,000.
4. Who are your key endorsements from within the Mid-Valley?
 An incomplete list thus far includes: The NRA, Oregon’s Dairymen Association, Oregon seed Council, Ag-PAC, Oregon Farm Bureau, Oregon Association of  Nurseries, Oregon Right to Life, Senator Fred Girod, Former Co-Speaker of the  House Bruce Hanna, Former Senator and State Representative Roger Beyer,  Representative Ken Cameron, Dick Withnell, Gerry Frank, Gene Cameron, Former Silverton Mayor Ken Hector, Former Silverton City Council member  Judy Schmdit, Sandy Sumner, Dr. Daniel Cote, Tom Fessler, Glenn Barker, Steve and Connie Johnson, Nick and Ginger Harville.
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.
