We have the opportunity to vote for Representative Greg Walden, sending him back to Congress to continue to represent us through these continuing challenging times. We need his hard working, experienced voice of reason, as well as his seniority in Congress, to balance extreme positions so often offered as solutions.

We may not all agree with all positions taken by our elected representatives, but we expect them to exercise good judgment to benefit our society as a whole. Many of today’s issues are complex and require a high level of experience and expertise to navigate to generally fair conclusions. There are forces that seem to take extreme positions and are unwavering, simply as a means to achieve their ends instead of general good. We are asking our representatives to fairly represent us, recognizing our diversity, in this climate of extreme positions.

Greg is working hard and getting a lot done. In addition to voting for tax cuts, improving forest management practices and improving care of veterans, Greg also voted for a measure that would have provided legal status and a pathway to citizenship for all 1.8 Million DACA kids who were eligible for deferred action under President Obama’s administration.

We are thankful for Congressman Greg Walden’s past service and look forward to his continuing judgment in the best interest of our democracy.

Please join us in voting for Greg Walden.
