A Leader in Medicine
Today, Bud is a senior partner of Hematology/Oncology of Salem, one of the last physician-owned oncology practices in the Northwest. Annually, the practice cares for thousands of patients with serious blood disorders and cancer. Bud has served as the anchor of the practice, working five days a week, generally from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the work that he always dreamed of doing. This pace of work has allowed Bud to care for over 15,000 patients over the past 20 years.
Time to Return Trust and Leadership to State Government
Bud is proud to be a member of the Republican Party. Anti-slavery activists, many of them people of faith, formed the Republican Party in 1854. Our first Republican President was Abraham Lincoln. Our economic policies have favored business success for the purpose of providing good wages and adequate pensions for war veterans. Oregon’s Republican Party governors have included the great Mark Hatfield, Tom McCall and Vic Atiyeh– governors whose policies and leadership bettered the lives of Oregonians.
Our Oregon faces a crisis of political leadership. In earlier times in our country and state, our political leaders were chosen from individuals who had first proven their leadership abilities in their private lives. Our current leadership is now commonly chosen from those who have little or no real experience in leadership in their private lives, but rather have made their political lives the essence of their existence. It is time for Oregonians to rethink the type of men and women whom they choose as their leaders.
