Doug Rodgers for your State Representative
Forests: Our timber land is beautiful. Old growth giants are a sight to behold! I love the smells in our State Forests and the beauty of God's creation as I hike the trails. But the trees are more than just great places to visit/get away for a while. They provide jobs for the small communities that line the two-lane highways that criss-cross our state. They become tables, chairs, homes, toys and crates. Oregon.
Trees are a renewable resource, and should be harvested and replanted in a continual cycle to keep our mills humming.
The needed revenue will help cash-strapped counties
from laying off sheriff deputies, and closing small
country schools dependent on the income from
logging communities. This lessons the tax
burden on the rest of us.
