Expanding the use of electric cars, and hybrids, are high on my list of what we can do in Oregon to get the US off of dependence on foreign oil and of supporting petro-states. Depending on the power source fueling the electric cars, they can also reduce greenhouse gases. We should pursue hybrid and electric car with all sensible vigor.

That relates back to the skill set of the manufacturing workers at Freightliner. My goal is to position Portland as the test place for all electric cars that can hopefully lead to component assembly of electric cars in the future. Will we be the place where the metal doors are stamped out? No. We'll be the place where the metal doors come to Portland with the other big body parts and that's where the final assembly comes together.
