Families intent on giving their children & future generations the hope of a better tomorrow, the promise of a safe and secure today, and an appreciation & respect for yesterday
PRINCIPLED, INNOVATIVE LEADERSHIP
Principled leaders with an understanding of Southern Oregon heritage and a clear vision for it’s future. Leadership that is unwavering in the face of criticism, steadfast when confronted with adversity, and committed to building a better community.

Freedom that is God given, affirmed by our Founding Fathers, articulated in the Declaration of Independence, and protected by the United States Constitution.
OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL
The opportunity to chart one’s own own course, start a business, chase a dream or build a life regardless of gender, race, or religion.
QUALITY OF EDUCATION
An educational system that prepares children for tomorrow’s workplace regardless of race, wealth or geographical location. Education is the bedrock of freedom and the gateway to opportunities of the future. Education comes in many forms, and all have value.
RUGGED INDIVIDUALISM & BUSINESS
The entrepreneurial spirit of the individual that continue to grow the Southern Oregon economy, workforce and community’s wealth is unstoppable. Businesses help provide the building blocks for community stability.
Embracing community & non-profit efforts assisting those in need, rather than a government trying to solve every problem by throwing money at it.
Individuals taking personal responsibility for their own actions, and a criminal justice system willing to direct those needing help toward a better way, provides optimal freedom. Freedom comes with responsibilities that can be taught.
