The Economy and Jobs
- Excerpt: "We need more private sector jobs in Northeast Oregon. We need jobs for our young people, as well as for those climbing the ladder of opportunity."
- Excerpt: "Early learning hubs and Common Core are not the answer. Any federally mandated program will contain bias from the ideology of the administration in charge. Education should be neutral from this bias."
- Excerpt: "Education should be under local control with parents and local school boards directing the children’s education – not the federal government."
- Excerpt: "Our people in the military who currently protect us, as well as those who have previously served, should be highly regarded and well taken care of. Of all the people who deserve good health care, these men and women deserve to be first in line."
- Excerpt: "The elderly should not be forgotten. Many on fixed incomes are affected by decisions in Salem. Any increase in the cost of living affects them. My wife and I as well as our children currently donate and serve at the Union County Senior Center and have for the last 10 years. Senior citizens are a valued and special part of our communities."
- Excerpt: "I am Pro-Family, Pro-Life, Pro-Business, Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Constitution, Pro-American. I believe in traditional family values and that marriage is between a man and a woman. That the nuclear family is foundational to a successful society and should be promoted and preserved."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
