Meet Knute

I love Oregon – its natural beauty, generous and independent-minded people and sometimes quirky culture. But under Kate Brown, too many Oregonians are falling behind and Oregon is failing to achieve our full potential.

No Governor in Oregon history has had more money to fix our schools, solve homelessness and rescue at-risk youth, but still Oregon has the third worst graduation rate in America, we lead the nation in youth homelessness and too many Foster kids remain vulnerable to neglect and abuse.

I will lead where Kate Brown has failed.

I am a fiscally responsible, pro-choice moderate with an independent streak. I’ve proposed ambitious plans to fix the pension crisis, improve our schools, solve homelessness, protect health care and bridge Oregon’s rural-urban divide. You can read them all here.

And unlike Kate Brown who has supported $13 billion in higher taxes since becoming Governor, I will balance the state budget without the higher taxes that raise your cost of living. Oregon doesn’t need another new tax – we need a new Governor.

Kate Brown has had 4 years as Governor and 27 years in Salem. Oregonians have waited long enough for leadership and results. Working together, I know we can achieve so much more.

I would be honored with your vote.
