Wyden to Hold Online Town Hall for Eastern Oregon Counties on Oct. 14


U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden will hold a live online town hall on Wednesday, Oct. 14 for residents of Umatilla, Union, Morrow, and Wallowa counties.

Anybody wanting to watch Wyden’s virtual regional town hall beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, can go to this Facebook link. Video at that link is available as well to people who don’t have a Facebook account. Residents of Umatilla, Union, Morrow, and Wallowa counties who would like to participate by asking Wyden a question can fill out this form for consideration.

Wyden has postponed in-person town halls until there are clear-cut public health guidelines that a large, indoor open-to-all public meeting poses no unusual health risk for Oregonians. The virtual regional Oct. 14 town hall hosted by Town Hall Project is Wyden’s second for Umatilla, Union, Morrow, and Wallowa counties this year.

“While the pandemic forces Oregon and the country to hold off on big indoor public gatherings until they’re safe to resume, I want to make sure Oregonians still have every opportunity to ask me questions directly and voice their views,” said Wyden, who will be in Pendleton for the virtual town hall. “I’m grateful that Town Hall Project is helping to continue these essential conversations and I very much look forward to hearing from Umatilla, Union, Morrow, and Wallowa counties.”
