The timber industry is hurting. Tim Freeman believes we need to support our timber based employers and workers as the economy changes. Tim understands that it has been the Timber Industry and its ability to employ thousands of local workers that has helped to fund local programs and services. Now, with an imminent cut off of timber revenues from the federal government, we face even greater challenges. Tim Freeman will work hard to represent the timber based issues that so drastically affect our area.
1. Expand harvesting in state forests, putting people back to work while generating millions of additional dollars for Oregon's schools.
2. Work with the federal Congressional delegation to ease harmful regulations in our region's federally-owned forests.
3. Support Oregon agriculture and work to expand water supplies and water storage capacity.
4. Reduce Oregon's capital gains taxes, among the highest in the nation, to promote new investments in local businesses and workers.
