As a 23 year resident of Bandon and Allegany, a project developer, volunteer and business owner I have experienced our regions’ resourceful, economically diverse citizenry, invaluable natural resources and unique identity. We enjoy effective economic development organizations, astounding natural beauty, sustainable, growing economies and citizens who cross political divides to help each other in times of need. However, our communities are facing many challenges. I welcome this opportunity to serve as your Senator to improve the living and business conditions of SW Oregon. Let me work with you toward a future of stable economic growth, a healthy, employable population, energy and food resiliency and a standard of living that we can all be proud of.  A Thriving, Resilient Oregon.
