Portland, OR – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in five counties — Tillamook, Clatsop, Columbia, Lane and Benton — on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 20 and 21.
He will update constituents on his work in Washington, D.C., and answer their questions and invite their suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.
“In our ‘We the People’ democracy, town hall meetings are an essential tool for me to hear from Oregonians and represent their interests back in D.C.,” Merkley said. “I invite everyone in these counties to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and our nation.”
Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. These five town halls will be his 333th, 334th, 335th, 336th, and 337th as a U.S. Senator. Details are below.
