Dr. Jenni Neahring has spent her adult life listening to her patients, understanding their needs, and advocating for solutions that will help them live healthier and more productive lives. That is what she will do for the residents of Oregon’s Second Congressional District.
Affordable, quality medical care is a universal goal. Oregonians deserve the opportunity to live healthy lives, and live them well. By reforming our healthcare system, we can reduce the toll illness takes on hard-working families and strengthen our economy.
Our society is aging with an urgent need to address how we will care for our parents and how we will be cared for as we age. Staying active and connected with our neighbors and family require new strategies as we see the number of seniors grow from 50 million today to 70 million in just 12 years.
A strong economy requires educational opportunities to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing society. We need to make it easier for Americans from all walks of life to access high-quality instruction for themselves and their children.
We need well-paying jobs to strengthen our economy, not tax breaks for corporations. Healthy employees raise strong families that move our economy forward.
Oregon’s natural resources provide opportunities for growing our economy sustainably. Thoughtful management can allow development of clean energy, agriculture, ranching, fishing and recreation while protecting our forests, rivers and open spaces.
