I have always been pro-life. The value of life has been instilled in me through my Catholic faith, my experience as a rancher, a lawyer, a father and a husband.
In my twelve-year legislative career, I have consistently been supported by Oregon Right to Life. I have contributed monetarily to ORTL, I have been featured as a pro-life legislator in ORTL’s publications, and I have worked closely with ORTL’s legislative team on many Right to Life legislative issues. In fact, the last bill I drafted in the Oregon Legislature was asked for by Oregon Right to Life.
After the 2019 legislative session, I was awarded, by ORTL, the Gayle Atteberry Award. Gayle is the immediate past president of ORTL and worked tirelessly and patiently with we legislators. She is the epitome of a champion for the unborn and the voiceless. It is and was an enormous honor to be selected, just last July, as one of the recipients of this award bearing Gayle’s name.
If I am elected to fill Congressman Greg Walden’s Second Congressional District seat, I will continue to be an advocate for the unborn and I will continue the fight for our most vulnerable in Washington DC.
