MEDFORD -- Continuing a series of town hall meetings around Oregon’s Second District, U.S. Rep. Greg Walden announced today that he will hold six town halls in April, with meetings in Medford, Grants Pass, Bend, Prineville, Hood River, and The Dalles.

“I’ve been proud to hold regular town hall meetings in all 20 counties in our vast district. They are another great way for me to update my ‘to-do’ list to take back to the nation’s capital,” Walden said. “While Congress and the country face major issues like growing the economy and fixing the health care system, I’m also working on finding solutions for local problems in our communities. Growing jobs in Oregon, finding common-sense health care solutions, better managing our public lands, and taking care of our veterans remain some of my top priorities.”

Each year, Walden holds at least one town hall meeting in all 20 counties in the vast Second Congressional District. By April 14, Walden will have held 13 town hall meetings in 2017. He held 27 in 2016 alone and 137 since 2012. At the end of February, a national press analysis found that Walden held more in-person town halls in February than all but two other members of the U.S. House and Senate.

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’ve gotten very favorable feedback from people in our district from the telephone town halls. These are especially important for those who have difficulty with transportation. They give people whose voice might not otherwise be heard a chance to weigh in on public policy,” Walden said.

Constituents can also follow Walden on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn more about his work around southern, central, and eastern Oregon.
