MERKLEY TO HOLD TOWN HALLS IN MORROW AND UMATILLA COUNTIES
Town Halls are Saturday, May 16th in Irrigon and Hermiston
Portland, OR – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in Morrow and Umatilla Counties in the coming weeks.
He will update constituents on his work in Washington, DC and answer their questions and invite their 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 Morrow and Umatilla Counties to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and nation.”
Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. Morrow and Umatilla Counties will be his 236th and 237th town halls as a U.S. Senator.
