Lunch with Leaders
Representative Kurt Schrader, 5th Congressional District

October 21, 2011@ Noon - Willamette Heritage Center, at the Mill

Salem City Club is honored to host Representative Kurt Schrader on Friday, October 21st at noon.  His remarks are entitled “Federal Budget 101.” This will be a frank look at the state of the federal
budget and what our options are for fixing it.    

Congressman Kurt Schrader is currently serving his second term in the United States House of Representatives. He represents Oregon's 5th Congressional District which includes all of Marion, Polk, Lincoln and Tillamook Counties as well as the bulk of Clackamas and small portions of Multnomah and Benton Counties. A farmer and veterinarian by trade, Schrader has also been a public servant for more than 3 decades.

Schrader was appointed to the Canby Planning Commission in 1981 where he worked on land use issues for the growing community in southern Clackamas County. In 1996 he was elected to the Oregon State House of Representatives. In the Oregon House he served as a member of the Joint Ways & Means Committee. In 2001, Congressman Schrader was one of 5 legislators asked by their peers to guide Oregon through the worst budget crisis since the depression. In 2003, he was elected to the Oregon State Senate and was immediately appointed to chair the Joint Ways & Means Committee. He continued to serve in that capacity until he was elected to Congress in 2008.

Before being elected to Congress, Schrader built and managed the Clackamas County Veterinary clinic in Oregon City as well as operating his farm where he grew and sold organic fruit and vegetables.

Congressman Schrader attended Cornell University where he received his BA in Government in 1973. He received his veterinary degree from the University of Illinois in 1977.

Congressman Schrader currently serves as a member of the House Committee on Agriculture,  the House Committee on Small Business and serves as ranking member of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Finance and Tax.  Schrader also chairs the Blue Dog's Taskforce on Fiscal Responsibility and the New Democrat Coalition's Health Care Reform Taskforce.
