What can the State Treasurer's office do to help turn Central Oregon's economy around? Treasurer Ted Wheeler was in Bend Wednesday asking questions about how the State can grow the economy. “The bottom line for me is, that until Central Oregon's economy turns around, the State's economy can't turn around. So I am highly motivated to be here, to listen to what people are saying and to hammer out a plan to help them grow the economy here locally.” Wheeler says the Treasurer's Office has hundreds of millions of dollars through the Oregon Growth Account and the Oregon investment fund. Those funds are designed to help small businesses grow and create jobs. Wheeler says he is actively looking for ways to help small and emerging Central Oregon companies, and he wants to talk to those companies in person to prioritize where the need is and where the money will do the most good.
