House District 23 residents and voters have some serious challenges that seem to be under the radar. For a moment, please ignore the daily chatter of divisiveness and look around this rural part of Oregon. This is what Danny Jaffer has been doing.
We have folks without any health care, who for one reason or another cannot find any dental and vision care. In rural Oregon we have families living in RVs and trailers relying on friends, neighbors and food banks just to survive. We have children living in homes that still have lead-based paint peeling off the walls. And we have rural schools in disrepair, holding four-day school weeks, filled with overcrowded classrooms, and offering limited class options. This is the neglected part of rural Oregon.
This November voters in House District 23 have a choice: an incumbent Mike Nearman who votes “no” on almost all of these important issues, or Danny Jaffer, who supports fully funded K-12 education, access to health care for all Oregonians and a clean and safe environment in which to raise our children. Education, health care and our environmental issues need solutions; simply voting “no” is not a solution.
Please look to the needs of all Oregonians. We need someone in our district who both understands the fiduciary role of government with limited budgets but also has the foresight to address everyone’s needs. Not every Oregonian is doing well and Danny Jaffer understands that.
