MEET BRENT BARKER

NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR STATE

Dear Oregon Voter –

 

I am Brent Barker, and I am running for Oregon Secretary of State.  My late graduate school advisor Dr. Charles Scott would say - “Brent Barker has the highest social value system witnessed throughout my career in higher learning.”  Friends often nickname me “the Congressman” as a person with ideas and more importantly solutions to address the issues facing our state. My long-term goal has always been a level of experience and education commensurate with the mission of government and community service.  My philosophy is to be educated and disciplined in the art of being empathic to the interests of Oregon taxpayers, citizenry and always concerned to the longer-term interests of society.  As an Aloha High School graduate have earned a Bachelor of Science in Administration and a Master of Arts at California State University.  My graduate education continues at Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law with an emphasis in Dispute Resolution.  Education is a lifelong pursuit and Pepperdine University is a school that offers the highest principles of professional, ethical, and moral responsibility that mostly align with my value system. 

 

Licensed Oregon Principal Broker to commercial investments, additionally hold licensing in Washington and Arizona since 2005. Trained academically to be a Nationally Accredited Exercise Physiologist and trainer to work with professional sports teams (NHL, NFL, Track and Minor League Baseball); and their athletes to become a television spokesperson to build a National Fitness Chain.  Negotiated over 450,000 square feet in commercial real estate structures and long-term leases subsequently sold to LA Fitness in 2007.

We look to bringing a level of civility and bipartisan spirit to governing. Focused on fair and honest elections, support candidates equally, and protect voting integrity, its process, and sovereignty. We will listen to business and support responsible state growth. Incentivize corporate development, new business, and high paying jobs.

Brent Theodore Barker looks to the future to serve all people and communities throughout Oregon.  Brent has a track record as a fighter for those with less, middle-class and working families.  Over the next few weeks, you will hear more about our grass-roots-driven campaign. 

 

Brent has attended countless business conferences, seminars, speaking at educational retreats and traveled much of the world in the quest of lifelong learning.   Personal conduct and professional responsibility to public concerns have been an overriding theme, edifying others with campaign signs, phone calls, social media while raising awareness to local issues.  My background, education, philanthropic activities, TV, and Radio experiences have been preparation to be the Oregon Secretary of State.  

 

As SECRETARY OF STATE, I will promote, and build fair access to our democracy in the State of Oregon; making reliable tools available to achieve economic success in the capacity of Secretary of State. Our goal is to provide transparency and bring the voters voice back to Oregon Government.  I will represent all parties, candidates, and voters equally with the highest level of transparency.  The Oregon Secretary of State must be the Ambassador of Goodwill representing everyone equally and inclusively.

 

Will resolve many of Oregon’s problems by fixing the election processes. This will require responsible measures to return systems of voting that can be trusted.
