paul carlos southwick

Paul Southwick is an independent-minded 5th generation Oregonian who grew up on a small farm in Clackamas County. Paul and his spouse live in the Tualatin area. One of Paul's political heroes, Senator Mark Hatfield, taught Paul that it is okay to break the mold to stand up for what is right. Like many others, Paul left the Republican Party because he felt that party left behind too many hard working Oregonians and because it refused to make space for LGBT Oregonians or to protect women's health. As a new, fresh voice down in Salem, Paul will move Oregon forward by making sure our schools are properly funded, our roads can handle the traffic, and housing and college tuition are affordable.

government transparency and reform

I am the only candidate who is refusing to take campaign contributions from out of state corporations. I will stand up to the special interests and lobbyists who are corrupting our government. I will put the needs of people in our communities first by pushing for lobbying reform, transparency and reducing the influence of money in politics.

 

equal pay for equal work

I strongly believe in equal opportunity for every Oregonian. I will fight to expand and enforce equal pay laws, so women and men get paid the same amount for the same work.

 

Education

Too many students are graduating from college with more debt than they can pay back in a timely manner. I will fight to increase dual credit options while students are in high school, so students can begin college with a solid foundation and reduce their student loan payments in the end.

 

Comprehensive Women’s Health Care

I am proud to be the only candidate endorsed by Planned Parenthood. I support a woman's access to health care, and I will fight to make sure insurance companies provide comprehensive women's health care including birth control, reproductive health services, prenatal care and cancer screenings.

 

Transportation

Like many of you, I am frustrated by the amount of time I spend in traffic, rather than with my family, and by
the poor conditions of our roads and bridges. To grow our economy, we need to take care of our infrastructure. I will advocate for a comprehensive transportation plan so that we can spend more time at home and less time on the roads.
