Campaign themes


Jensen's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Cultivate a business environment that is conducive to job creation

  • Excerpt: "As a small business owner, Barbara understands that burdensome regulations can stifle job creation. She will use her experience in conjunction with advice from the local business community to champion policies that support a strong local economy, so our kids can find good jobs after graduation right here in Oregon."

Holding government accountable

  • Excerpt: "Our state government is in turmoil over failed projects like Cover Oregon, and Oregonians in House District 25 are calling for a voice of experience in the legislature who can ensure accountability and transparency for how taxpayer dollars are spent. Barbara’s experience in government oversight makes her the ideal candidate to make certain that every penny of your tax dollars is used wisely."

Evaluate all options to give our kids a world class education

  • Excerpt: "For far too long, powerful interests in Salem have worked hard to reduce education choices for families, insisting we “need more money.” Barbara knows that spending more of your hard earned tax dollars is not the answer. She knows that we must make smart investments in education to prepare our kids to enter the workforce. She will work to make sure parents have choices that fit the needs of their kids, and that our schools provide the best possible education for all."
