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.
Girod - A Leader We Know, A Friend We Trust
Voice for Agriculture
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.
Champion for Timber
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.
Leader for Public Safety
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.
Vision for Oregon's Future
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.
