Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Heard's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

We need jobs and a better economic environment

  • Excerpt: "One of the most pressing issues facing both our district and our state is employment. Oregon’s unemployment rate is higher than the national rate, and Douglas County’s is even higher. Regulations and taxes imposed on small business by government entities, as well as under-utilizing our natural resources due to strict land use laws, have made it difficult for Oregonians to create and maintain jobs."

We need a quality educational system

  • Excerpt: "We need strong schools in our communities in order to be relevant in a global economy and to foster a future of achievement. Among other things, we should work to promote honest evaluations and increased support for educators as well as making sure that school dollars are spent in a way that increases student achievement.

We need sustainable and sensible government spending

  • Excerpt: "As a small business owner, I find it frustrating that Oregon’s government continues to spend more in each budget with fewer results. While many of us have made necessary financial adjustments in our households and businesses, the government has been continuing on a path of unsustainable spending. Public services such as schools and roads suffer as a result of not receiving financial priority, which directly affects the lives of Oregonians."
