Campaign themes

Parrish's campaign website highlighted the following issues:

  • Education First.: "Our children should be given the very best opportunities possible. We need to make funding education our first priority and protect against more budget cuts that hurt our schools. We need to demand better access to quality services and programs for K-12, improving our schools and communities together."
  • Stabilize Spending: "Oregon needs to learn to live within its means. We shouldn’t have to spend every day concerned with whether the government is going to increase another tax on our businesses or homes, or make another cut to essential services. Its time the Legislature put together a budget and stick to it, just like the rest of us do."
  • Better Solutions: "We are faced with a great challenge of creating an environment for personal success in our state. We need to work together to rebuild Oregon’s economy with creative solutions that support growth. Our businesses deserve it, our kids deserve it and the future of our state deserves it."
