As a business owner, farmer, and a family, we have to live within our means. Oregon must do the same. Oregon’s state budget has never been larger, revenues to the state have never been greater, but it never seems to be enough for Salem. As your state representative, I will focus on streamlining inefficiencies and removing administrative waste. I will ask the question, is this a service we really need, or can this service be delivered better and most cost-effective through the private sector? We must have respect for taxpayers in the budgeting process.
