Governor Kitzhaber is speaking at the Riverhouse in Bend today for the annual EDCO luncheon; but some local Republicans say they won't be there. Executive Director Roger Lee says they've received a few calls from people who said they didn't want to come because of politics. Lee says EDCO is non-partisan and the of Board of Directors wanted to host the person who was elected as Governor, regardless of party: "Governor Kitzhaber was elected and whether you like it or not. He is our top elected official for the next four years in our State and it's important that we engage and try to figure out how to do whatever is possible from a State perspective to improve the business climate here and create a situation where new job growth can happen."   Lee says the Governor's comments will be about 20 to 30 minutes, allowing for a lengthy question and answer session after his remarks.
