Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley will hold a town hall at 3:30 p.m. Monday, April 30, in the Russell Tripp Performance Center at Linn Benton Community College.
He will update constituents on his work in Washington, D.C., and answer their questions and invite their suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.
“In our ‘We the People’ democracy, town hall meetings are an essential tool for me to hear from Oregonians and represent their interests back in D.C.,” Merkley said. “I invite everyone in the county to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and our nation.”
