ISSUES: ( please check out the news icon to listen to interview's)
Election Integrity- So far our government officials have been avoiding the issue of the mail in vote, and our registry election programs. Although the elected officials agree and know the outdated programs are in desperate need of change, they have decided to wait until 2023. Another example of how our current state governor and elected officials do not put Oregonians first. We need to go back to voting in person with voter ID, process county, by county. Our government is not transparent and we need pull the reins back and simplify. Rebuild trust in our election systems, we have amazing technology that isn't being used on purpose. Jackson County is doing the hard work with an election integrity team, I would encourage everyone to be proactive and get involved. You can sign up and get information on my volunteer list, I will get you involved with their team. They are doing amazing work and need extra help, and more hands on deck as the move further in the process for an audit.
Forest Management- Oregon needs to bring back our forest management protocols, get our logging industry back. Kate Brown insist that our fire crisis is completely due to to climate change, I disagree. We have not been managing our forest properly. Year after year we live in a smoke season; this is not Oregon, I know I was born and raised here. Now this is also due to neighboring states, California and Washington have also been following similar forest destroying "protocols" for forest "survival." These programs, policies, and government overreach, is destroying everything. For Oregon to get out of this mess, we have to step up. Bring common since policies to every industry now. Kate Brown and numerous bureaucrats have led us here. Its time for change in the direction that is transparent and productive. Oregon needs real results, real solutions, real work getting done, no more talk, we need action.
Crime- I do not agree with defunding the police. We have seen crime rise 800 % , homes and businesses destroyed. This is due to poor leadership by our Governor. Crime consequences are low and are not working. There is zero accountability or punishment for individuals that break the law. We have no balance in our cities and where authority should be present it has been stripped away.
Abortion- Pro Life, I feel we should focus on sexual assault funding we can provide a safe place for victims of these heinous crimes. Sexual Assault, and Domestic violence , Sex Trafficking, are one of the top to get budget cut first. There are so many emotionally charged issues that our government uses against us citizens. Lets educate and fund programs that actually help rape victims, abuse, and domestic violence. Support programs that really help, not to just use tax payer money and drop the programs that actually make change and help victims. We should be focusing on sexual assault, domestic violence, and sex trafficking.
Gun Rights - I stand by our 2nd amendment. If you look at the states with the most extreme gun control laws; those states and cities have higher crime. Gun control is yet another form of government control. Our government finds emotionally charged issues and uses these issues to take advantage of citizens.
Budget- Our over all state budget is not balanced. We need a full audit on all agencies. This way we can truly see where money is being spent, how much, see what programs are working, which ones are not. We need to de-regulate harmful and foolish fees and cost for small businesses and independent contractors. There are certain government entities that have been given way too much authority ( costing tax payers more money, and hurting businesses) and to be downsized.
Water Crisis- This fits with the budget issues we have in Oregon, pay the farmers for their water rights. We have had issue after issue with water since Kate Brown took office. Between the forest management or lack there of, poor budget management, it is no surprise where we are today. Oregon has the money to build more water reservoirs, Oregon has the technology and resources to utilize so we can become more energy independent ,so we can lower the cost of bills. We could even collect rain water from roof systems from industrial businesses in our state, and give a tax break to those businesses and give the water to the farmers. We have so many options to get out the water crisis.Our current Governor doesn't have any interest in making Oregonians a priority.
Taxes- Our taxes are not balanced. We need to lower taxes and help grow the middle class. We need to lower taxes, if we do not our youth will never be able to prosper and more Oregonians will move away because it will be too expensive to live here.
Elderly- We need to take care of our elderly better. We have a huge community of people who are retired, yet a lot of the programs are geared to youth and lower income. Our elderly pays more money to programs and property taxes on a fixed income; this is not balanced. Our government assistant programs are not balanced and are misused.
Education- Our education system is being challenged by our governor. Making math, science, reading, and other foundational structures of education a non-requirement is absurd. Not only has there been mandates and other forms of government over reaching; Unions have also overstepped many boundaries of students and their parents. The students and families have suffered enough, it is time to give the authority where it should have remained this entire time.
Homeless- This has become a huge issue for Oregon and neighboring states. We keep spending millions of tax payers dollars and still no results. We need change; we need to audit the homeless government agencies, find out exactly what we are spending what works and what doesn't. We have a drug and mental health issue which creates a large homeless issue. The more money we keep dumping into programs that clearly do not work, we will continue to have a crisis. Our homeless population keeps growing, even though there is countless programs, and more tax dollars every year funded. Clearly our current establishment can write checks funded by tax payers.
Mental Health - Our Governor has shut down facilities, they have promised more facilities with the decriminalization of drugs.... and yet no facilities. Oregonians are tired of the lies, we had mental health treatment centers when I was a young girl. We had more programs and better care before the progressive movement shifted Oregon. We need in-patient treatment with full time care. We are tired of the corruption. Adults and our youth have a negative view on republicans, and conservatives; not wanting to help people. This is far from the truth, I'm here to not only carve a clear path for our youth to see that is a media and political narrative meant to stray voters and youth away from the truth. The time for change in Oregon is needed more now than ever. I'm here to create communication amongst all Oregonians no matter what party you vote for.
AUDIT- I keep saying it and I mean it, we need an audit on all government funded agencies, all government spending,EVERYTHING!!! and I want my OWN. Business can run as usual while an audit is being conducted we do it in business all the time. This is a must, in order for us to move forward with trust in our government we need to be transparent. They are not, they haven't been, and we know it.
Covid- This is a subject that I feel is a personal health choice between you and your doctor. The moment the government steps in to mandate on you on a vaccine, where you can work, where you can shop, this is getting out of control. This is destroying relationships, families, businesses, and truly our children and our elderly have been hit so severely. Our children at school, the depression, anxiety, the years, they will never get back. The richest man in the world can't back you back a second, these poor children. Years taken away, nothing ever will replace a senior graduation, your first day of as a freshman in high school, does anyone care! They seem to busy with case numbers, instead of days numbered for these students. I'm tired and so is every Oregonian, every real person, I'm a patriot not a politician, I will say that over and over. I care more about the next generations to come rather than just another election!
