Wyden Kicks Off New Year With Town Halls

Schedule Includes Senator’s Landmark 750th Town Hall

Portland, Ore. – Senator Ron Wyden next month will hold town halls starting on Jan. 3, including his 750th town hall.

Fulfilling his promise to hold annual town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties, Wyden will kick off 2016 with town halls between Jan. 3 and Jan. 6 in Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, Wasco, Wheeler, Gilliam, Sherman and Hood River counties.

On Jan. 5, Wyden will be in Wheeler County for his 750th town hall – the location of his first town hall 20 years ago in Fossil when he first won election to the Senate.

“My promise to Oregonians of town halls each year in each county began in Wheeler County, which is why there is no better place to hold this landmark 750th town hall,” Wyden said. “I am so proud to represent the entire state in the true Oregon tradition by throwing open the doors of government so we can get beyond sound bites and have substantive discussions with Oregonians about their ideas to make our state and our country an even better place.”
