"His independent voting record often places him outside party ranks, although it demonstrates that McCarty probably represents his district's constituents better than Barbara Roberts did."

Ron believes the most important element of problem solving is listening to all sides to ensure a positive result. He opposes closed-door meetings and supports full public participation. Multnomah County needs a return to open government; this is especially important when dealing with public education issues.
Experience at representing constituents, not political machines or the hidden agenda of special interests. Ron does not accept contributions from lobbyists. As one who has evaluated state agency and school budgets, while on the State Revenue and School Finance Committees in the Legislature; Ron is the most qualified candidate to deal with the fiscal problems and budget issues facing M.E.S.D.
I'll do best job I can do for you
