I'm running for office because I believe in the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence namely Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Too often political office has been a means for the politician and party to increase in power and wealth. Our elected officials and unelected bureaucrats seem to always want more power and more money. I believe you have the right and ability to make your own choices about your life. I also trust you make better choices for yourself than the government would make for you. No government has the right to regulate or control your relationships, property, lifestyle, or finances. I will stand up and help Oregon be a national leader for civil rights, and for human rights.
What does this mean for you? These are some of the things I will fight for as your representative:
I'm not in this for myself. I'm running for the House to serve you, and to stand up for our natural, human rights by limiting the power of government, and enabling you, the people. The Constitutions of the United States and the State of Oregon will be my guide. My “litmus test” on whether I will support a bill or not will be whether it will help you be more free or not. For more information, please see my website at www.Leeds4Oregon.com. I humbly ask for your support, and your vote.
