Geo. W. Dunn Is a candidate for
nom ination for S tate S enator on the
R epublican T icket to succeed him ­
self.
If nom inated and elected, he will,
as he has done in the past twelve
years, try to tru ly represent the peo­
ple ot Oregon. As a m em ber of the
W ays and M eans C om m ute,, a t th.
1933 R egular Session of the L egisla­
tu re, he assisted in reducing the
S tate expenses from $15.000,000 to
*9,000,000 for the biennium 1933
and 1934. As C hairm an of th e Sub­
co m m ittee of th e W ays and Means
C om m ittee on ag ricu ltu re, he saved
the S tate over *100,000 th a t in all
prohabilty ould have been ap pro­
priated for the S tate F air at Salem
and the Pacific In tern atio n al at
P o rtlan d , had he not refused, over
strong protest and vigorous lobbying
to approve these ap propriations.
Both of those fairs were successfully
held last year w ithout the assistance
sought, which show s th a t in those
places fairs can and should be self-
sustaining.
He is not n e u tra l on the Sales Tax.
He voted for the tax and because of
the inability of so m any property
ow ners to pay th e ir taxes, un em er­
gency now exists, and he strenuously
urges all to vote for the Sales Tax
to m eet the em ergency, to save our
schools, and to relieve property tax ­
payers of a part of their burden.
He belongs to no faction, has no
tads, and desires no fu rth er political
advancem ent.
