MERKLEY TO HOLD 100TH TOWN HALL IN WASCO COUNTY

100th Town Hall will be held Sunday, July 17th in The Dalles, Oregon

Portland, OR – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold his 100th town hall as a U.S. Senator in Wasco County next week.

He will update constituents on his work in Washington, DC, answer their questions and invite their suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America. 

“The past ninety nine town halls have given me the chance to travel to every corner in Oregon and hear from residents about how we can create jobs, strengthen Oregon, and put America on the right track,” Merkley said. “It has been a remarkable experience and I look forward to the next 100 town halls across Oregon.” 

In 2008, Merkley pledged to hold town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. He upheld his pledge in 2009 and 2010 and is continuing that commitment in 2011.
