FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nelson Ijih, Republican Candidate for Oregon Congressional District 4
Eugene, OR, May 1st, 2020 – Nelson Ijih is a Republican candidate who has spent most of his adult life in Oregon and has served both the Oregon community as a teacher at local Community College & University as well as our nation as a Foreign Service Officer in the U.S. Government. He has also worked for many years as an Engineer at Intel Corporation & Motorola and owns a Technology business that employed several Oregonians.
Nelson has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Computer Engineering & Science from attending Southern Illinois University, Portland State University, and the University of California, Santa Barbara. Nelson understands the issues facing Oregon & America and has many years of private and public sector experience it takes to fix the issues including but not limited to:
1) SUSPENDING PAYROLL TAXES DURING CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
This is an unprecedented time for our country. Working-class Americans deserve to keep their hard-earned paychecks. I propose a halt on payroll taxes until the coronavirus crisis is over. I proposed a tax relief plan on overtime pay before the coronavirus crisis for hard working Americans HERE
2) ALLEVIATING HOMELESSNESS
I have developed a plan that improves our workforce and helps the homelessness crisis using the student debt crisis. Read more about it HERE .
3) REDUCING HEALTHCARE COST
Fight to end health insurance regional monopolies which artificially drive up the cost of healthcare.
4) EDUCATION REFORM
Cut the cost and time for college degrees into half because half the classes for a college degree do not pertain to a student’s major. Today’s job market has left the old education system behind. It’s time to reform higher education and avoid a future $1.7 trillion student debt crisis.
Implement tax incentives for small businesses developing carbon capture and repurpose technologies to get America to net-zero carbon emissions.
6) LOCALIZING OREGON RESOURCES
I’m a strong proponent of localism and decentralization. I will fight to localize ownership of Oregon’s resources so that the people of Oregon decide the best ways to manage its resources and the environment.
