Merkley to Hold Lane and Marion County Town Halls

Portland, OR
– Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in Lane and Marion Counties next week.

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 Lane and Marion Counties to meet me and discuss what we need to do to get Oregon working again and strengthen America.”

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. Lane and Marion Counties will be his thirtieth and thirty-first town halls of the year.
