PRINEVILLE - U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) will hold town hall meetings in central and eastern Oregon next week, kicking off a nine day trip throughout the Second District with town hall meetings in eight counties, including Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, Union, Wallowa, Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties.


 “While the Congress and the country face difficult choices about reducing the debt and growing our economy, I’m also working on finding solutions for local problems here at home.  Providing enough water and power for job creation, unleashing innovation in the technology sector, improving management of our federal forests, and taking care of those who wear or have worn our nation’s uniform remain priorities for me,” said Rep. Walden.  


By Feb. 1, Rep. Walden will have held town hall meetings in 16 of the 20 counties in the Second District. Last year, Rep. Walden held 24 town hall meetings, at least one in each of the 20 counties.


 Details on additional events, including the other town hall meetings, will be announced as they are finalized.
