Congressman Greg Walden

Representing the 2nd District of Oregon

Growing the Economy

As a small business owner in Oregon with my wife for more than two decades, I understand what it takes to sign the front side of a paycheck and work day in and risk everything to grow your business and create jobs. It’s no easy feat.

All too often, small business owners find government red tape standing in the way of growing their business, creating jobs, and providing affordable services in our communities. That’s why I’ve helped lead efforts to reduce harmful regulations that are unnecessary and cost us jobs. In addition, the federal government’s out-of-control debt weakens our economy and burdens our children and grandchildren. That’s why I’m committed to strengthening our economy and solving these problems right here in Oregon.
