There are several things that will have to change if Oregon is going to pull itself out of the recession. That’s the message that Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber brought to Bend Monday. One the things that has to change is a perception: “Saying very clearly that Oregon is open for business. We have had a lot of talk over the last 18 months over the poor business climate in the state.  It’s my intention to turn that around.   While we still have a long ways to go, we will have a lot to be proud of.” Kitzhaber says more jobs are coming to the State. “The Oregon Business Plan has set an ambitious objective of creating 25,000 jobs per year, each year for the next 20-years. That’s about 2000 jobs per month. We created 6500 jobs in Oregon in January.   It was announced in Monday’s EDCO meeting that 9800 jobs were created in Oregon in February.   Kitzhaber says Oregonians are going to have to take a "leap of faith" and be willing to embrace new ideas for health care, education, and state funding.
