Moving Oregon Forward

Dear Friends,

After several  difficult years, Oregon is finally starting to see signs of recovery.  We have come a long way, but we still face major challenges while moving our state forward, restoring economic stability, and protecting our community’s most vulnerable members.  If we continue to work together in order to find creative solutions to the problems we currently face, we can help build a better future for all Oregonians.

Our legislature has been hard at work getting Oregon back on track. As your Representative, I have been working to ensure that we restore the services and institutions that reflect the values of America.  Historically, we have been a nation that prides itself on its strong public education system, its innovative and industrious workforce, and its ability to create a brighter future for the next generation.  Even in the face of the greatest budget shortfall in our state’s history, it is critically important that we preserve these institutions and prevent them from further budget cuts.  We must invest all that we can in our future to make sure that the next generation of Oregonians has access to a quality public education, opportunities for affordable higher education, and the necessary skills to find living-wage jobs.

The road ahead is long, but together we can guide Oregon and America through these tumultuous times.  By investing in our future, and in the futures of our children, we can help make our communities and our economy stronger and more vibrant.

Most importantly, I want to make sure that your views are heard.  If you have any issues you would like to hear addressed, send an email to

Together we can make a difference.

Sincerely yours,

Phil Barnhart
