Looking Forward to Session


Over the past eight years, I have visited many communities across our state and met with everyday Oregonians and experts in many fields, hearing the best ideas on how to best move our state forward.

I've listened and I've learned. Now, I'm going to keep doing my part to build a better future for Oregon. After touring Oregon and after talking with my friends and neighbors here in Salem, it's clear that our state needs bold leadership to solve our most difficult challenges...rebuilding the middle class and stop sending our jobs overseas!

I've determined that the best place for me to address these challenges right now is in the State House, serving the people of Salem.

This session I have the privilege of chairing the Rural Communities, Land Use, and Water Committee, as well as serving as a member of the Health Care Committee and the Natural Resources subcommittee of Ways and Means. In this capacity, I intend to continue to push for honest and fair legislation that will benefit our District and the state of Oregon.

This session I am working to expand our progress from previous years. They include:

• Increasing the funding amount for our successful Farm to School program, which brings fresh fruits and vegetables grown in Oregon into our classrooms for our children to enjoy. This legislation helps our family farmers and improves nutrition of school kids across the state.

• Reforming annexation law to provide support to our unincorporated citizens and ensure that they have a voice in a fair and transparent process of becoming part of the cities they live near.

• Protecting our local neighborhoods by monitoring the process of the remediation and sale of the Oregon State Hospital North Campus property.

• Working to reduce the cost of higher education. College should be more affordable, plain and simple. Burdening our future generation with tens of thousands of dollars in student debt, is a recipe for disaster, and I am proud to be doing something about it.

My job is to be your voice and I hope you'll keep telling me what's on your mind: if you have an idea to move our state forward, I want to hear it. Please e-mail our campaign and let us know your thoughts on how we can jumpstart Oregon's future.

It is truly an honor to serve the people of House District 21. I look forward to working with you over the coming months as we take our state in bold new directions and build a better Oregon for all of us.

For Oregon,

Brian Clem
