Sen. Ron Wyden plans virtual town hall June 3
U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden will have a live regional online town hall hosted by People's Town Hall for residents of Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, Sherman, Gilliam and Wheeler counties beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 3
"I'm looking forward to throwing open the digital doors of democracy on June 3 to Oregonians in Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson, Sherman, Gilliam and Wheeler counties who want to ask a question, or share a viewpoint," Wyden said. "The 'Oregon Way' is all about these conversations in every nook and cranny of our state, and I very much appreciate People's Town Hall for helping these discussions to continue online while precautions require a temporary hold on in-person town halls."

"Town halls are essential to our democracy," said Nathan Williams of People's Town Hall, a virtual town hall series from the founders of Town Hall Project. "But during this global pandemic, we strongly encourage all lawmakers adhere to current health guidelines — including holding town halls virtually as long as necessary for public safety."
"People's Town Hall invites all of Sen. Wyden's constituents to this town hall — all parties welcome, no issue off limits." Williams added. "We expect another substantive, vigorous discussion of the issues that matter most to Oregonians."
