ENTERPRISE—Todd Nash, Wallowa County Commissioner, cattle rancher, and former Chairman of the Wolf Committee for Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, will be speaking on panel this Thursday, April 4 at 2:30pm in Pendleton at a town hall and listening session on wolves hosted by Congressman Cliff Bentz.

“Wolf management is complex, multi-faceted, and controversial because numerous voices and perspectives are needed, and every voice on the issue deserves to be heard,” said Todd Nash, livestock rancher and republican candidate for Senate District 29. “If we don’t handle the growing wolf population carefully and responsibly, the families and communities who depend on revenue from livestock for their livelihoods will face even greater challenges.”

Nash is the Immediate Past President of Oregon Cattlemen’s Association where he served as president from 2020 to 2022, as Wolf Committee Chairman for the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association from 2012 to 2016, and as a member of OCA’s Wolf Task Force. He has been instrumental in crafting Oregon’s policies on wolves, ranging from successfully lobbying at a federal level with President Trump’s administration to delist wolves from the endangered species list, to increasing compensation for livestock losses due to wolves and cougars, to advocating for changes within the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on behalf of farmers, ranchers, and hunters statewide.

Nash currently serves as Wallowa County Commissioner in 2016 and is the Immediate Past President of Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. In addition, he has been active with Association of Oregon Counties as Co-Chair of the Natural Resource Committee and on the Public Lands Committee at National Association of Counties. Nash and his wife of 33 years, Angie, own and operate their ranch Nash Natural Beef out of Enterprise.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the listening session at 2:30pm on Thursday, April 4 at the Pendleton Convention Center, 1601 Westgate. Nash will be speaking alongside representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Congressman Bentz is the chairman of the Water, Wildlife, and Fisheries Subcommittee in the House of Representatives and has been hosting similar listening sessions throughout Congressional District 2.

In his campaign for Oregon State Senate in District 29, Nash is endorsed by Congressman Cliff Bentz, the Oregon Farm Bureau, Oregon Trappers Association, Timber Unity, and more.
