To the editor:

I am a 60-year resident of The Dalles, a registered Independent voter who is concerned about the criticism of Greg Walden’s record in Congress. He is a native Eastern Oregonian, while his opponent has only registered to vote in Oregon this year and has lived most of the past years in California.

Greg has worked hard on many bipartisan issues, including cutting taxes, reducing regulations, helping fully fund children’s health insurance for 10 years and, most especially of interest to me, reforming how we manage forests to reduce fires.

He has passed more legislation than any Oregon Congressional delegate and most of it bipartisan.

Please think carefully about your vote. I feel it is imperative to keep a native Oregonian in office … one who cares about our concerns. I urge voters to investigate records and vote for Greg.

Please don’t vote against him as an anti-Trump statement. He has been in office longer and, hopefully will remain so.
