Oregon needs to be prepared to face the unexpected. We face information warfare attacks on our freedom and democracy at a dangerous and ongoing level. The attacks to infrastructure we can solve by building resiliency into the systems. The attacks on our national identity of One Nation United, we can only address through leadership. It will take each and every one of us.

I prioritize programs focused on community cohesion in the event of a disaster. Rural communities need planning, networks and leadership to have action plans in place that connect people with needs to neighbors who can help in the event of an emergency. Extra fuel, water and food should be in every home. We know how to live with fire and flooding but a massive earthquake or political upheaval are imminent threats to our security that are not being addressed by our current leadership.
We face the high costs incurred by irresponsible politicians making unfunded promises. Tightening budgets and unfunded mandates have hobbled critical institutions that are now failing and contributing to a dangerous distrust and disillusionment in our government. We need to invest in our state infrastructure, future generations and take funding those priorities seriously. Measure 97 was a viable funding model that would have provided funding to schools, roads and services we all value.
