Character and real experience matters!

"I'm a constitutional republican. I believe in better education, smarter defense, affordable health care, respecting seniors, less government, local control, and life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Brian says consolidate federal education programs, agencies, bureaucracy then mandate 95% of federal education dollars to classroom instruction under local control and accountability.

Brian is pro-defense and pro-veteran and is a veteran. Spend wisely not blindly ... that takes experience not flashy publicity.

Brian wants an economic stimulus package, permanent elimination of the death, marriage and capital gains taxes. Cut the IRS. Simpler is fairer!

Brian says save Oregon for our children not from our children. Federal bureaucrats have proven how not to tell the truth. It is time for Congress to prove "citizens" are the government.

Brian says honor seniors. No cuts. Provide flexible affordable prescription care. Safeguard their future while rebuilding ours!

Brian says prosecute criminals, enforce existing laws, and support the U.S. Constitution.

Brian supports parental notification.

"A strong economy in the future means supporting small businesses and families now. A smart defense means taking the fight to the terrorists not running away from Washington DC. A strong defense means supplying the troops in the field not funding pork barrel projects. Congress is not a choir, tough decisions take leadership. We must balance economic issues, defense spending, transportation, and education funding. I will use my 26 years of business, military, education, and international experience on five continents as a voice of leadership for positive change."

"I'm asking for your vote this election."
