EASTERN OREGON: Walden conducting town-hall meetings

Representative Greg Walden (R-Hood River) today announced he will hold 16 town halls in January, with meetings in Josephine, Jackson, Klamath, Deschutes, Jefferson, Crook, Harney, Malheur, Baker, Wallowa, Union, Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, Hood River, and Wasco counties. Full details on the town hall meetings are included below.
“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 has held 148 town hall meetings since 2012 and responded to more than 168,000 letters, emails, and phone calls in the last two years. Walden recently released the top legislative accomplishments for Oregon in the 115th Congress, including work to combat the opioid crisis, improve forest management, and give Oregon veterans access to better care at the VA.
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. 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,” Walden said.
Constituents can also follow Walden on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn more about his work around Oregon’s Second District.
