Cal Mukumoto’s father earned a purple heart in WWII, teaching him the meaning of service. Thirty years ago, Cal helped establish a log merchandising and sales program for an Oregon mill – boosting local businesses. Since then, he has brought that same innovative approach to helping businesses throughout Oregon to create new jobs and thrive in the economy. Cal will be the strong voice that Oregon’s coastal families deserve in the legislature.
