Issues

Strengthening Public Education

Our community takes public education very seriously. That’s why Jeff Barker’s number one priority for the next session of the Legislature is to get our schools back on track with smaller class sizes, a well-rounded curriculum, and the financial support our teachers and students deserve.

Keeping Oregon Safe

As a former police officer, public safety has always been a top priority for Jeff Barker. He’s voted for tougher penalties for sex offenses, drunk driving, and identity theft. 

For the future, Jeff’s priorities include reducing gang-related crime and providing more crime prevention options.

Putting Oregon Back to Work

Recently, Jeff Barker has championed creating jobs by investing in community colleges and providing additional capital for small businesses, but there’s a lot more to do to get our community back to work.

Jeff is currently working on increasing job skills training and education by better linking businesses and community colleges and he also supports investing in infrastructure projects like roads and bridges.

Helping Families Keep Their Homes

Jeff Barker voted for Oregon’s tough new homeowner protections that require banks to offer mediations and loan modifications to all homeowners, make sure that foreclosed banks are well-maintained, and compensate families who’ve lost their homes to wrongful foreclosures.
