I’ve organized and directed 10 international legislative trade delegations to promote Oregon business, education and tourism. As Governor, I will open new markets for Oregon products and services that create jobs and return prosperity to Oregon.
I’ve earned a reputation for demanding absolute accountability and fiscal discipline from government. I’ll put an end to cronyism, demand accountability and lead a government that will be more focused on protecting your job than mine.
We can protect our environment and our jobs. My policy will be simple – I’ll get government out of the way of good corporate citizens that follow the rules and create good jobs but I will have a zero tolerance policy for those that put self-interest ahead of responsibility.
