As a wife, mother and grandmother, Laura Morett understands the importance of family in community.
Laura knows that to help families in Oregon, it is important that they don’t have to worry about costly budget increases, which means less money to them.
One way Laura supports families is her support for the personal tax kicker in Oregon. Many Democrats think the state should get to keep over-collected tax money in a “rainy day” fund.
This money belongs to hardworking families who are often struggling to make ends meet. Laura understands that this money could mean a new pair of shoes for a child or being able to comfortably buy school supplies for a family of four.
I support Laura Morett for Oregon House District 20 because she understands the very real financial demands that raising a family takes. She will vote to support working families, not gross government spending.
