KLAMATH FALLS, ORE. - My name is Dennis Linthicum and I recently filed to run for elected office – Oregon State Senate District #28.
I am a former Klamath County Commissioner and was a Senior VP of Management Information Systems. Twenty years ago family opportunities led us to Oregon where we became active in careers and rural community life. I have a B.A. in Economics, from UCLA, and I currently utilize my economic knowledge as a teacher and speaker for the Dirt Road Economist. I also provide training on Constitutional principles throughout Oregon and California.
The reason for my candidacy is that Oregon needs realistic solutions. Oregon’s budget problems are mounting with estimates for the next biennium's shortfall to be near $5 billion. Oregon needs to push beyond the status-quo mentality that pretends our ever-expanding bureaucracies will provide citizens with ever-expanding opportunities.
Big-government, it is not the solution – Liberty is!
The hardworking people who live, work and play here in Oregon have a right to more freedom, less regulation, more personal control with lower fees, permitting requirements and taxes.
