Merkley to Hold Southern Oregon Town Halls

Merkley to Hold Southern Oregon Town Halls

Five Town Halls are Tuesday, May 26 Through Thursday, May 28

Portland – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in Coos, Curry, Jackson, Josephine and Klamath counties in late May.

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

“Advocating for Oregonians is my number one responsibility,” Merkley said. “I invite all residents of Southern Oregon to meet me and discuss what we need to do to get our nation back on track.”

Last year, Merkley pledged to hold town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year.  He held his first town hall in his native county, Douglas County.  Klamath, Jackson, Josephine, Coos and Curry counties will be his tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth town halls.
