Ron Wyden to host Washington County town hall April 28
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is planning a town hall in Washington County and in Salem this weekend.
Oregon's senior senator will be in Beaverton, Saturday, April 28, at Five Oaks Middle School, where he will meet with constituents for an update on his work in Washington, D.C. and take questions from the audience.
"Open-to-all town halls play a big part in what I call the 'Oregon Way,' where any person can ask any question in a public meeting," Wyden said in a news release. "Throwing open the doors of government for town halls to have these conversations is a must in our democracy, and I very much look forward to hearing from Oregonians."
The Beaverton town hall begins at 11 a.m. at Five Oaks Middle School, 1600 N.W. 173rd Ave.
The following day, April 29, Wyden will host a similar meeting at Salem's 50+ Center, 2615 Portland Road, at 1 p.m.
Wyden has vowed to hold annual town halls in each county, but has made frequent trips to Washington County since the election of President Donald Trump. He held six in Washington County in 2017, including two in Hillsboro.
Wyden's last town hall in Washington County was in February at Century High School, where he spoke out against Trump's calls to arm select teachers to fight against armed gunmen during mass shootings.
