These upcoming town halls will increase to 887 the number of town halls Wyden has held since pledging when first elected to hold annual town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties.

“Throwing open the doors of government for town halls where anybody can come to ask any question is a huge part of what I call the ‘Oregon Way,’’’ Wyden said. “Participatory democracy is alive and well in our state, and I look forward very much to hearing from Eastern Oregon at these town halls.”

Wyden will hold a town hall meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 3 at Umatilla High School and will hold another town hall meeting at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4 at Riverside Jr./Sr. High School in Boardman.
