BEND, OR -- Oregon Senator Ron Wyden will kick off 2016 with a series of town hall meetings in Central and Eastern Oregon. Sunday, January 3, he’ll be at St. Charles Prineville at 4:30 p.m. Monday morning he’ll make a stop at Ridgeview High in Redmond at 9:45, then Senator Wyden heads north to the Madras City Hall at 12:30 p.m.
“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,” says Senator Wyden (D-OR).
Meetings are also planned for Wasco, Wheeler, Gilliam, Sherman and Hood River counties on Tuesday and Wednesday, including a milestone in the small town of Fossil. “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's first Oregon town hall was held in Fossil 20 years ago, shortly after he was elected to the U.S. Senate.
Senator Jeff Merkley will also be in town next week, with stops scheduled for Madras, Prineville and Bend on Tuesday, January 5.
