Bend Bulletin, East Oregonian, and Grants Pass Daily Courier urge voters to support Walden for Congress
BEND, OR — Greg Walden (R-Hood River) received sweeping endorsements from editorial boards of newspapers across Oregon’s Second District. The Bend Bulletin, Grants Pass Daily Courier, and Pendleton-based East Oregonian all urged voters to support Walden’s re-election to the House of Representatives on November 6th, saying Walden is the strongest candidate to serve as the Second District’s voice in Congress.
Excerpts from each editorial are included below:
Editorial: Walden the best choice for 2nd Congressional District
“Walden is not a flashy politician. Instead, he works hard at his job representing the people of the 2nd Congressional District….He reflects the views of this district well and will continue to do so. He should be re-elected.”
Editorial: Walden deserves another term in Congress
“Rep. Greg Walden knows exactly what those who have sent him back to Washington 10 consecutive times want from him. They want the 61-year-old Republican to lead on issues that are important to most rural Oregonians, and Walden has done just that. He has pushed the House of Representatives on forest management, fire borrowing, rural internet infrastructure and opioid abuse.”
Editorial: In face of change, Walden has earned an 11th term in Congress
“Walden continues to get work done as he sounds the alarm on wildfire management. We believe his efforts in that field to be critical for Oregon’s future, and believe his focus on the impact of smoke is as crucial for us as it is in Southern Oregon….however the rest of the chips may fall we believe he is the best suited to bring our needs to Washington and bring results back to the 2nd District.”
Greg Walden is a lifelong Oregonian whose ancestors came to Oregon in the fall of 1845. Walden was born in The Dalles and has spent nearly his entire life living in the Gorge. He and his wife Mylene owned and operated radio stations there for more than two decades. They raised their son in Hood River, where they’ve lived in the same home since 1987.
