BEND, OR -- U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) plans to hold town hall meetings, next week, in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson County. Congressman Greg Walden (R-OR) has been criticized by some in Bend for not holding a public meeting in the area for several months.
Wyden says he's continuing the conversation that began with meetings held elsewhere in the state, earlier this year, which drew record crowds. More than 1500 turned out for a Town Hall with the Democrat on February fourth in Linn county.
Monday, February 20, the Senator will be at Sisters High school, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 21, he'll host a town hall at Crook County High School at 12:30 p.m. And, Wednesday, February 22, Wyden will be at the Madras Performing Arts Center, at 10 a.m.
