Bentz shares E. Oregon values

To the editor:

There are two clear reasons why we should support Cliff Bentz for election as our Oregon State Representative.

First, Cliff is right on the issues. He shares our Eastern Oregon values which is apparent in his long list of endorsements including former Congressman Bob Smith and Oregon Right to Life.

Secondly, Cliff's approach to getting issues important to our part of Oregon on the table in Salem is proven and effective. It is easy to say no and not reach out to others — but that won't get our issues heard nor addressed. Cliff has shown the ability to get all parties to the table and open the other side's eyes to how regulations and policies out of the west side of the state negatively impacts the east side of the state.

Please join me in voting to elect Cliff Bentz to the Oregon State House.
