Congressman Greg Walden was chosen to head the House Republican Transition Team because the new Majority Leader, John Boehner admires his work. A recent survey of Oregon voters indicates that Walden is the most admired elected official currently serving Oregon. The website Oregoncatalyst.com reports that Walden, the lone Oregon Republican in Congress, was the overwhelming choice. Walden says he has always thought that the House is the "peoples house"; that they are stewards of taxpayers’ money and the public's business. He says will continue to fight for openness in government and that's what people respond to. Even political and ideological opposite, Congressman Earl Blumenaur says Walden brings a refreshing view to his job. KBND would like to congratulate Greg Walden for being Oregon's most admired elected official.
