Outside Oregon’s population centers, rural economies still have much to recover | OregonLive.com
by Rep. Bill Post
I saw the "good news" of our economy this week in the fiscal revenue reports, but this headline nails it. Most of our state is still hurting. Yes I know, the major population centers are doing pretty well, but what about all of our rural folks? Farms, ranches, small businesses. We need to take care of ALL of Oregon. I hope that our friends on the "other" side of the aisle remember that they represent ALL of Oregon as well as their metro districts.
