Oregon Business Association has named U.S. Senator Ron Wyden as its 2015 OBA Statesman of the Year honoree.
“As a big picture problem solver unlike any other in America, Senator Wyden is more than deserving of this honor,” said OBA President Ryan Deckert.
Senator Wyden will be honored at OBA’s 15th Annual Statesman Dinner on Monday, Oct. 12 at the Oregon Convention Center.
For more than 30 years, Sen. Wyden Ron Wyden has served Oregon in the U.S. Congress — 15 years as a member of the House of Representatives and since 1996 in the U.S. Senate. He is the ranking member of the U.S Senate Finance Committee and serves on the Budget and Energy and Natural Resources Committees as well as the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
OBA is proud to honor the “Senator who listens” for his many years of dedication to Oregonians and for bipartisan leadership. Senator Wyden says the nation’s biggest problems can only be solved by what he calls “principled bipartisanship,” solutions that allow all parties to stay true to their respective principles and agreements. However, when principles are at stake, he has never shied from standing alone.
