Merkley and Schrader to Hold Joint Town Hall in Newport
Portland, OR – Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and Congressman Kurt Schrader will hold a joint town hall in Lincoln County next week.
They will update constituents on their work in Washington, DC and answer questions and invite suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.
“There are huge issues facing Oregonians and the best way for me to effectively advocate for Oregon’s families and businesses is by getting out on the road and holding a town hall in every county, every year to hear directly from Oregonians,” said Merkley. “I invite all residents of Lincoln County to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and nation.”
“These meetings are a chance for us to visit, talk about what’s been going on in Washington, and find out ways that we can be helpful to you,” said Schrader.
In 2008, Merkley pledged to hold town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. He upheld his pledge during his first term. Lincoln County will be his 218th town halls as a U.S. Senator.
U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley and Congressman Kurt Schrader will hold a joint town hall meeting with the public in Lincoln County Tuesday, February 17th, 2pm at the Newport Recreation Center, Room 124, at 225 SE Avery Street.
