Jo Rae is Running for the U.S. Senate because
She is concerned about the direction elected officials have taken These United States of America. Our Founders and Framers formed a more perfect union of States, each with its own sovereignty through The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights. They believed a government closer to the people would be more efficient and effective. They knew a large centralized government would lead to an over-arching form of rule, taking power away from the local citizens. Clearly the Federal Government is becoming centralized and over-arching. The time has come to shrink the size of the government. It is also time to remind our citizens that the United States is a Republic, not a Democracy. And, it is time the Federal Government follows the U.S. Constitution. Jo Rae Perkins will work diligently towards to shrinking the government and restoring our Republic. She also believes it is important we work towards understanding each others views in order to bring about consensus. She will work towards stopping the political battles that tear at the very fabric of United States. Only then will America will be restored as the 'Shining City on the Hill'.
Her background in financial planning, budgets, banking, and real estate along with her many years of civic and community involvement have prepared Jo Rae Perkins to faithfully represent Oregon at the federal level. This is the time to elect Jo Rae Perkins to the U.S. Senate.
