Portland – Oregon’s Senator and Douglas County native Jeff Merkley will hold his first town hall in 2010 in Douglas County.
Merkley will follow the Tuesday, January 12 town hall at Umpqua Community College with town halls in Josephine and Jackson counties. 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.
“Advocating for Oregonians is my number one responsibility,” Merkley said. “I invite all residents of Douglas, Josephine and Jackson counties to meet me and discuss what we need to do to get Oregon working again and strengthen America.”
Merkley, who was born in Myrtle Creek and lived in Roseburg before moving to East Multnomah County, also held his first town hall of 2009 in Douglas County.
In 2008, Merkley pledged to hold town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. He upheld his pledge in 2009 and is quickly advancing it in 2010. Douglas, Josephine and Jackson counties will be his first, second and third town halls of the year.
