Wyden Announces Statewide Town Hall Schedule For April
Coming off this year’s landmark 1,000th town hall, senator’s upcoming online town halls will be in Coos, Curry, Yamhill, Clatsop, Linn, Benton, Polk, Gilliam, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa and Morrow counties
Portland – U.S. Senator Ron Wyden today announced he will have 12 live on-line town halls hosted by People’s Town Hall in April for residents of Coos, Curry, Yamhill, Clatsop, Linn, Benton, Polk, Gilliam, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa and Morrow counties.
Heading into this month’s virtual town halls, Wyden has held 1,007 town halls statewide in fulfillment of his pledge to hold at least one town hall each year in each of Oregon’s 36 counties.
“Keeping my commitment for town halls each year in each of our state’s 36 counties has been essential to my public service because it provides any Oregonian the opportunity to ask questions and share their ideas,” Wyden said. “And coming off my 1,000th town hall earlier this year, I want all Oregonians to know I’m going to keep my promise to continue these direct discussions that help to shorten the distance between our state and Washington, DC. That’s the Oregon Way and I very much look forward to these upcoming conversations at home in Oregon.”
"Our democracy is stronger and better when lawmakers meet regularly with their constituents, and we congratulate Senator Wyden on his recent 1,000th town hall representing the people of Oregon,” said Nathan Williams of People's Town Hall, a virtual town hall series from the founders of Town Hall Project. “People's Town Hall invites all constituents in these twelve Oregon counties, regardless of party affiliation, to join the upcoming substantive conversations so vital to our democracy."
