Oregon’s rural areas are struggling, and lawmakers have done little to stimulate these economies. The Oregonian is coming to Southern Oregon to take a look at current events in agriculture, including O&C lands legislation and the proposed Coos Bay LNG plant.
It’s very important for the two editors from the Oregonian who will be moderating the panel understand the far-reaching impact of natural resource utilization and constraints on the economies of rural Oregon. They’re very influential and could really help our cause.
Two editors from the Oregonian, Erik Lukens and Mark Hester, will be moderating the panel, which consists of Simon Hare, Dr. Peter Angstadt, Jon Redfield, Greg Addlington, and Andy Geissler.
