Wyden to host virtual town hall for Central Oregonians Monday


Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden will host a live online town hall Monday for residents in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties.

The event will be hosted by the Town Hall Project.

Anybody wanting to watch the virtual regional town hall beginning at 11 a.m. can go to this Facebook link.

Video at that link is available as well to people who don’t have a Facebook account.

“Hearing directly from Oregonians is always a top priority and that conversation must continue so Oregonians in every part of our state can ask me questions, voice their views and share their priorities about all the challenges facing our state and country,” Wyden said. “The coronavirus public health crisis puts those in-person town halls on a temporary hold, but this virtual town hall with residents channels the best of our state’s ‘Oregon Way’ to figure out solutions that allow these civil conversations to continue.”

Residents of Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties who would like to participate by asking Wyden a question can fill out this form for consideration by Town Hall Project.

two-time winner of Town Hall Project’s MVP Award, Wyden has held 970 in-person town halls statewide in fulfillment of his pledge to hold at least one town hall each year in each of Oregon’s 36 counties.

Wyden has postponed in-person town halls until there are clear-cut public health guidelines that a large open-to-all public meeting poses no unusual health risk for Oregonians.

On April 17, he held a statewide virtual town hall hosted by Town Hall Project. The virtual June 29 town hall hosted by Town Hall Project is the sixth in a series of six regional town halls Wyden is holding for Oregonians throughout the state until in-person town halls can safely resume.
