Oregon State House District 26
Webb's campaign website lists several main issues:
- Education: "The statistics about our public education system are terrifying. Oregon has the second largest elementary school class sizes in the country. Many students share textbooks and we have one of the shortest school years. We need to invest in and reinvent our schools if we want to provide a community our children want to call home for their families and their children’s families or to attract businesses with a ready workforce..."
- Seniors: "She believes in increased funding for long term care, supportive services, and Oregon Project Independence. Solutions should be found that allow senior citizens to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible and to ensure no senior feels isolated in their home. Sandy will work to make the Medicaid qualification process more transparent and consistent, and she will fight for lower prescription drug costs, including support for bulk purchasing pools..."
- Rainy Day Fund and Kicker Reform: "We do not have adequate savings in our state budget to deal with down times. Sandy supports placing up to 10 % of the total General Fund in a savings account. This savings account would be available to protect critical services only during future downturns; it would not be available as discretionary project spending."
- Housing Crisis: "There are too many empty houses, too many short sales that cannot go through because mortgage companies ignore homeowner needs, and too many real estate industry professionals are unemployed or seriously underemployed. Sandy will work on legislation to mandate that mortgage companies make timely response to short sale offers and to make the foreclosure process speedier so that homeowners who are in financial difficulty can move on with their lives."
- Family Wage Jobs: "Sandy believes the State should work cooperatively with business groups and communities to develop incentive programs and tax reform proposals that are good for Oregon, businesses, and the people who live here. Good working wage jobs can be created consistent with the Oregon philosophy of environmental stewardship, sustainability, and buying local and selling everywhere. Oregon needs to regain the market on the manufacturing jobs that made it such a great place for blue collar workers to live and work."
- The Environment: "Oregon was first in environmental leadership when it passed the Bottle Bill, land use planning protections, marine reserves, and climate change legislation. Oregon now needs to be aggressive in setting new long term water strategy as it lags its less progressive neighbors in water quality protections and planning for sufficient quantities to be available to farmers, business and manufacturing, and residential uses..."
