Merkley to Hold Wheeler, Gilliam and Grant County Town Halls

Town Halls are Saturday, May 29th and Sunday, May 30th at Fossil, Arlington and Canyon City, Oregon.


Portland, OR – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in Wheeler, Gilliam and Grant 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 Wheeler, Gilliam, and Grant 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. Wheeler, Gilliam and Grant Counties will be his twenty-third, twenty-fourth and twenty-fifth town halls of the year.
