State senator Chuck Riley to open Hillsboro office Nov. 17
Hillsboro's state senator has plans to open a legislative office in downtown Hillsboro later this month.
Chuck Riley, a Democrat representing District 15, announced on Tuesday that he will open an office at 122 E. Main St., on Nov. 17.
A grand opening for the office is planned from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17. The event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
"I have always believed it's important for me to be in touch with the people I represent in Senate District 15, and this is a great opportunity to do that," Riley said in a press release. "This office is in a very accessible downtown location, which will make it easier for constituents in this district to find me and provide input on legislation they care about that affects them."
Riley represents Hillsboro, Cornelius, Helvetia and Forest Grove in the Oregon Senate. Riley was elected in 2014, ousting longtime lawmaker Bruce Starr in a close race.
Riley said the office will make him more readily available to constituents.
