Campaign themes


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

Protect Oregon's Natural Beauty

  • Excerpt: "As a native Oregonian and an avid hiker, Teddy cares deeply about keeping Oregon green. He has already helped pass legislation expanding Oregon's landmark Bottle Bill. Teddy has also served on the OLCV Multnomah County Steering Committee, volunteering his time to conservation issues. Teddy also supports tough new standards to prevent dumping of toxins in our rivers while encouraging collaboration between businesses and government to keep our rivers clean."

Promote Sustainable Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "Teddy Keizer will advocate for job creation and sustainable economic growth. In 2008, Teddy co-founded the nonprofit Oregonians for Renewable Energy Progress (OREP). With years of experience, Teddy has worked to create a stable environment for small, local solar companies. By creating new financing mechanisms for solar installations, there is the potential to create thousands of new family wage jobs right here in Oregon."

Make Health Care More Affordable

  • Excerpt: "As a legislator, I will advocate for a single statewide system of publicly funded health care in Oregon, where every family would enjoy better care regardless of how poor, sick, or unemployed they might be. We need a health care system that puts money into health care, not administration, allowing all Oregon families to afford the care they need."

Make our schools a model for the nation

  • Excerpt: "As a legislator, Teddy will also commit to working on lowering the cost of higher education by reinvesting in Oregon's public universities, community colleges, and trade schools."

Ensure that All Oregonians are Treated Equally

  • Excerpt: "All Oregonians, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender deserve to be treated with fairness and respect. This is why Teddy has dedicated his time to volunteer with Basic Rights Oregon to work toward passing Marriage Equality legislation in Oregon. He is a strong supporter of a woman's right to choose and he serves on the board of NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon."
