Mr. Minthorn’s priorities in running for the Senate seat held by Mr. David Nelson, who is retiring, are No. 1 the economy, No. 2 education, No. 3 affordable health care. These priorities are all intertwined.
Our economy can expand and be revitalized with an educated and well-trained work force. There are many positions out there that require skilled people in order to do the needed work.
Affordable health care allows the workers access to medical treatment as needed and gives employers the incentive to provide health care coverage through the purchasing power of group/exchanges. Gov. Kitzhaber is setting up the exchanges for health insurance, he is the first in the nation to do so.
There is much more information concerning Mr. Minthorn’s plans for the future on his website (antoneminthornforsenate.com).
Please join me in voting for Mr. Antone Minthorn, Democrat, Oregon State Senate, District 29.
