Bentz Solutions, LLC deals with general business and governmental affairs mainly based around natural resources.
Andy understands that Oregon was founded with natural resources and needs to return to its roots to insure prosperity for all of its citizens. Oregon has the ability to fund its education needs and assure that its rural communities return to a position of being net exporter of taxes to the State rather than being a net importer of tax based services. It is time for rural Oregon to be allowed to make a living for their citizens.
