Why I’m Running

Meet Bud

A Bagboy’s Story: William C. “Bud” Pierce, M.D., Ph.D. was raised in a small Southern California town in a happy, close-knit family. His dad was a public school janitor, and his immigrant mom was a homemaker. Bud’s sister, Liz, gave him his nickname…

TODAY is the Primary Election Day here in Oregon. That means you have just hours left to submit your ballot and have your vote counted

Unlike many who decide to run for public office, my life story isn’t one of glamorous beginnings or a spoon-fed childhood.

My dad was a public school janitor, and my mom is an immigrant who worked as a homemaker.
When I lost my father at age 14, I worked part-time after school and on weekends at the Air Force Base market as a bagboy, doing anything I could to help us make ends meet.
It was from this that I learned the meaning of hard work, which I carried with me through college, through UCLA Medical School, through the Marine Corps, and now in my day to day practice as a cancer doctor.
I was able to turn humble beginnings into a life of accomplishments and service.
And now, I know that this same drive and determination can turn around challenging circumstances here in Oregon, too!
Our state can go from one that is struggling under crime, homelessness, poor education, and other challenges to one that is thriving and where citizens are safe in their communities.
But there’s one critical component necessary to complete Oregon’s turnaround — dedicated supporters like YOU.
So thank you for supporting my campaign, for being there for my family throughout the last several years, and for making the commitment to our great state.
We will heal Oregon together!

Election Integrity

Election Integrity

Bud Pierce isn’t afraid to question the political system in Oregon, and that includes election integrity. Bud will put an oversight process in place that ensures only eligible voters are registered and that ballot integrity is maintained all the way from the voting process to the counting process.

2A/Traditions/Constitution

2A/Traditions/Constitution

Bud has earned the support of the NRA, receiving the highest rating a non-incumbent can achieve in the Oregon Republican gubernatorial primary. In an era where politicians are trying to defund the police, and crime is on the rise, the ability to protect yourself and your family has never been more important. As your governor and a strong supporter of our traditions and constitution, I will protect your 1st and 2nd amendment rights.

Healthcare

Healthcare

As a cancer doctor, Bud understands the positives and negatives of the healthcare system.He will lower the cost of healthcare by reducing administrative fees,eliminating/regulating monopolies, ending differential payments for the same services, and through increased innovation and productivity.

Crime/Public Safety

Bud Pierce is very concerned with the rampant crime that is rising in Oregon. He understands the importance of supporting law enforcement, and he will return us to a state of law and order.

Homeless

Bud Pierce is deeply disturbed by the homelessness crisis in Oregon. His solution involves addressing the underlying mental health and drug issues, affordable housing, increasing public shelters, teaching real-life job skills, and bringing an end to the enabling of self destructive behaviors.

Pro-Life

Pro-Life

Bud is proudly endorsed by Oregon Right to Life. Bud will always support life over death. His focus is on encouraging policies that support women throughout pregnancy, education, and increased care for young parents. Supporting life = caring for the vulnerable in our community.

Education

Education

Bud Pierce is saddened that Oregon students currently suffer one of the poorest performing K-12 education systems in the country. He understands that we need a non-political oversight board to look after education in the state and not rely so heavily on partisan, career politicians.

Cost of Living

Cost of Living

Bud Pierce is shocked by the skyrocketing cost of living that is hurting Oregonians and their families. He will make our great state more affordable by lowering regulatory burdens, supporting free market competition, modernizing land use planning, and shrinking the exorbitant scope of government.

Mandates

Mandates

Bud believes the government has abused the power of mandates. Under a Pierce administration, citizens will be able to make their own decisions about what’s best for them and their families.
