Issues

If you’re like me, you’re sick and tired of politics as usual in Salem. As voters, we say one thing but the politicians in Salem do another. I’ve decided to return to the Legislature because I believe we need to respect the will of the voters. We need to create a balanced budget without new taxes and stop the expansion of government. We need to create a level playing field for timber and agriculture and repair our troubled education system. Together we can make this vision work in Salem.

Fred Girod - A Leader We Know, A Friend We Trust

A Voice for Agriculture

Fred believes agriculture is the foundation of his district’s economy and will work to provide a level playing field for our farmers. Fred will work to sustain the will of the voters and protect private property rights.

A Champion for Timber

No one understands better than Fred how hard the decline of the timber industry has hit our local economy. Fred wants to clear the barriers to responsible cutting of timber and recognize the value our timber industry brings in terms of jobs, investment, and environmental stewardship.

A Leader for Public Safety

Fred will work hard to protect families from the scourge of meth in our communities. Fred will protect the voter-approved mandatory minimum sentences that put violent offenders behind bars. He will also fight for additional funding to boost the number of Oregon State Police Troopers we have on the roads.

A Vision for Oregon's Future

We need experienced leadership in Salem – Fred has served in the Oregon Legislature as well as the Stayton City Council and the Stayton Budget Committee. Fred has also served on the Santiam Hospital Board and the Foundation of the Santiam Watershed.
