POWELL BUTTE, OR -- Tensions continue to run high across the country, even nearly two weeks after the election. Protests continue in some parts of the area, although things were quite in Portland over the weekend.


State Representative Mike McLane (R-Powell Butte) says tells KBND News, "I understand that it's been a divisive year, and there's a lot of people on both sides of the partisan aisle that aren't happy about 2016. But, the tradition of our country is that we do come together. And, we recognize that first and foremost that we are American; and we have a lot more in common than that which divides us." He believes both parties will be able to come together for the sake of the country.


McLane was selected by his party last week to remain as Oregon's House Republican Leader. He is prepared to go to Salem in February and says he plans to work on the budget shortfall and a transportation package. He's hopeful the Legislature will be able to work across party lines.
