Campaign themes


Wilson's campaign website highlights the following issues:[3]


  • Excerpt: "We've always suffered from “two Oregons,” but the pain is more acute than ever before. Josephine County needs good jobs and we need them as soon as possible. I will work tirelessly to search out, identify, and eliminate barriers to our success. We must bring jobs and opportunity to rural Oregon."

Natural resources

  • Excerpt: "Picture Kansas without wheat, Iowa without corn … and 18 O&C counties without timber. Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But, that's our reality. We must continue to demand that our federal delegation stand for all of Oregon! We need the income that sustainable timber harvesting will produce … it will make a huge difference."


  • Excerpt: "Government was established to secure our rights … not to become our master. I will remember that with every vote I take!"


  • Excerpt: "We are a nation of laws and the United States Constitution is under attack every day. Please join me in standing for our constitutional freedoms and rejecting the lawlessness that is so pervasive these days."
