Oregon may not know it yet, but in 2021 it is going to lose a tremendous amount of influence in Washington, D.C.

That’s because longtime federal lawmaker Greg Walden will step down that year from his slot in the U.S. House or Representatives. Walden, 62, announced earlier this week that he will not run for re-election in the huge 2nd Congressional District. That district includes large chunks of Eastern and Southern Oregon — including Umatilla and Morrow counties.
