Wyden to Hold Five Town Halls Next Week

Senator’s open-to-all meetings will be in Wasco, Gilliam, Umatilla, Union and Baker counties

Portland – Senator Ron Wyden will hold five town halls Oct. 22-24.

Heading into these town halls in Wasco, Gilliam, Umatilla, Union and Baker counties, Wyden has held 905 town halls statewide since promising Oregonians he would hold at least one annual town hall in each of the state’s 36 counties.

Wyden has already fulfilled that annual town hall promise in 2018 for all of Oregon’s counties, holding 44 town halls so far this year. The upcoming town hall will be his second this year in Wasco, Gilliam, Umatilla, Union and Baker counties.

“Throwing open the doors of government throughout Oregon and answering any question from anybody is how the Founding Fathers intended American democracy to work,” Wyden said. “At a time when there’s so much public interest in all that is happening in Washington, DC, these open-to-all town halls take on special importance, and I look forward very much to hearing from Oregonians next week.”

Wyden’s town hall schedule is as follows:
