The most powerful Oregonian in the new Republican-controlled House says his mission is to earn back the public’s trust. He feels it’s time to completely re-do the way Washington does business. Representative Greg Walden says he doesn’t mind the national attention he’s getting as head of the GOP House transition team, because he says everything needs to be transparent and out in the open.

 

And, the speculation is increasing as to what Oregon Congressman Greg Walden will do after he completes his task of helping the GOP orchestrate a leadership takeover of the House.   Walden says he has left the door open to possibly Chair an Energy and Commerce Subcommittee that has jurisdiction over telecommunications policy.   There is expected to be a heated contest for the leadership role in that committee. For now, Walden is downplaying his future, stating he wants to see who will be the full Committee Chair before deciding what subcommittee he wants to lead.
