“I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be holding 16 town halls across Oregon’s vast Second District,” said Walden. “I look forward to getting together with people on the ground and hearing your concerns and ideas and suggestions about this new session of Congress, and giving you an update on the things we’ve accomplished and what we want to work on going forward.”
Walden will hold a town hall meeting in Umatilla County at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at the Pendleton Convention Center, 1601 West Gate.
Later that same day, Walden will hold at town hall meeting at the SAGE Center in Boardman, 101 Olson Road. That meeting will begin at noon.
Walden has held 148 town hall meetings since 2012.
Oregonians who cannot attend Walden’s town hall meetings but would still like to ask questions or provide input are encouraged to visit his website at www.walden.house.gov. There, Oregonians can find Walden’s views on local and regional issues, send him an email to provide input, and sign up for his free, regular newsletter.
Second District residents can also sign up for telephone town hall meetings through Walden’s website.
“I receive very positive feedback from people in our district about telephone town halls, which reach thousands of people in the comfort of their own homes,” Walden said. “These are especially important for those who have difficulty with transportation. Telephone town halls give people whose voice might not otherwise be heard a chance to give their input on the issues they care about.”
