Portland, OR – Oregon’s U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley next week will hold town halls in nine counties across Oregon. The town halls will be February 19 through 22, in Polk, Yamhill, Malheur, Baker, Wallowa, Union, Umatilla, Linn, and Lane counties.

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

“Hearing from Oregonians across the state is critical to doing my job,” Merkley said. “Whether it’s helping communities recover from flooding, or supporting fuels reduction in wildfire-prone counties, or getting disaster aid for winegrowers and hazelnut orchards in the Willamette Valley, the ideas and priorities I hear about in town halls inform the solutions that I fight to get into federal law. I look forward to these discussions about how we can strengthen our state and our nation.”

Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. These town halls will be his 409th, 410th, 411th, 412th, 413th, 414th, 415th, 416th, and 417th as a U.S. Senator. Details are below.
