Portland – U.S. Senator Ron Wyden today announced upcoming live on-line town halls hosted Sept. 30-Oct. 2 by People’s Town Hall for residents of Lake, Wheeler and Wallowa counties.
Heading into these upcoming virtual town halls, Wyden has held 1,024 town halls statewide in fulfillment of his pledge to hold at least one town hall each year in each of Oregon’s 36 counties.
“Listening to Oregonians’ priorities in town halls like these in Lake, Wheeler and Wallowa counties is crucial to public service and representing every part of our state,” Wyden said. “Thanks to Oregonians’ commitment to direct democracy, I’ve been honored to keep my promise to hold town halls each year in each of Oregon’s 36 counties. I had my 1,000th town hall in Oregon earlier this year, and I’ll always keep providing these opportunities for any Oregonian to ask me any question.”
“Our democracy is stronger and better when lawmakers meet regularly with their constituents, and we congratulate Senator Wyden on his 1,000th town hall earlier this year 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 three Oregon counties, regardless of party affiliation, to join the upcoming substantive conversations so vital to our democracy."
