U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) has held more town hall meetings than any other lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2019, according to Town Hall Project.
Town Hall Project confirmed that Walden’s 20 town halls in the first three months of this year leads the 435-member body.
“Town halls are just one way I hear from Oregonians across our district,” said Walden. “Along with the more than 70,000 letters, emails, and phone calls that I have responded to over the last 12 months, these meetings help me stay updated on the issues facing people on the ground in our communities. This is a top priority for me, and I look forward to continuing to hold these meetings throughout the Second District.”
Walden held town halls across eight counties in southern, central, and eastern Oregon in January and held town halls in Lake and Morrow counties in February. In early March, Walden held town hall meetings in Hood River, Wasco, and Umatilla counties, before holding meetings in Wallowa, Union, Baker, Grant, Wheeler, Gilliam, and Sherman counties at the end of March.
Walden has held 168 town hall meetings since 2012.
