I am writing in support of Rick Dyer for county commissioner.
As an independent voter, I am not swayed by political rhetoric nor partisan politics; instead I look at a candidate’s credentials, history and values, and make a decision based on how he or she will help local issues that I am concerned with. I have known Rick Dyer for seven years, and have no doubt that he is knowledgeable and concerned for Jackson County and its citizens.
As an educator in Southern Oregon, I see first-hand how families struggle to meet basic needs, and I’ve expressed concerns with Rick. He has his own student in the Medford School District, and is fully aware of the challenges that families and students face.
He is a family man, taking time out of his busy schedule to coach youth sports and advocate for education. I am proud to call him my friend, and I’m proud to endorse him for county commissioner!
I’m writing to ask you to join me in supporting Jessica Gomez to be my replacement for Oregon Senate District 3.
Jessica is uniquely qualified for the position. She is a business owner and mother who has served on several boards and was appointed by the governor to be a trustee for the Oregon Institute of Technology.
If elected, Jessica will bring her impressive work ethic to our state capitol. We need real life experience among our legislators to find solutions to the problems facing our state, including public education, health care, the environment and balancing the budget. Jessica has that experience.
Please join me in helping to elect Jessica as the first Hispanic female senator to join the Republican caucus in the history of Oregon. And thank you for the opportunity to serve you in filling out the term of my friend, the late Sen. Alan Bates.
Sen. Alan DeBoer
