Eyre Brewer's campaign website lists five main issues:
- Growing our Economy & Creating More Jobs: "Oregon families are hurting, and Salem has failed to address our state’s chronic unemployment. As a business leader, Katie knows firsthand how government bureaucracy and red tape can often cost Washington County valuable jobs..."
- Quality Schools & Successful Students: "Every child in Oregon deserves a quality education that prepares them for a brighter future. Our community is blessed with fantastic schools. However, one-third of Oregon’s public school children do not complete 12th grade on time. Katie is determined to break down the barriers to real reform of our public education system. She will hold schools accountable to parents, give teachers more flexibility, and maximize funding for classroom instruction."
- Control Runaway Spending & Protect Vital Services: "The massive debt and unfunded liabilities being passed on to our children and grandchildren will severely limit their future opportunities. Elected leaders must stand up to the special interests controlling decisions in Salem. Katie opposes raising taxes on working families, and will work to ensure your tax dollars are being spent wisely..."
- Making Health Care More Affordable: "Katie has worked with clients struggling to pay their health care costs. That’s why she supports allowing you to deduct your out-of-pocket health care expenses from your taxes. Building bigger bureaucracies is not the way to improve our health care system. Katie believes health care decisions should be made by you and your doctor – not by insurance companies or the government."
- Public Safety: "As a survivor of violent crime, Katie knows how important public safety is to our communities. She’s worked closely with local law enforcement to reduce violence and protect our most vulnerable citizens. Katie has made it her mission to help women and families heal in the aftermath of devastating violent crimes."
