MEDFORD, Ore. — Last week, gubernatorial candidate Patrick Starnes (I) stopped by the NewsWatch 12 studio to discuss the issues that he's campaigning on — issues that he says his Republican and Democratic opponents won't touch.
Starnes says that he is taking aim at "kitchen table" issues while his opponents are focused on the popular "hot button" ones — the latter of which, he says, are largely influenced by special interests.
As a means of combating those kinds of special interests, Starnes says that he would work toward acheiving campaign finance reform, passing laws to keep large donors out of elections.
Starnes also spoke about working on the issues of homelessness in Oregon, public employee pensions and education.
