Merkley and Bonamici to Hold Joint Town Hall in Vernonia

Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici will hold a joint town hall in Vernonia on Friday, April 3 at 2:00 PM at the Vernonia School Commons.

They will update constituents on their work in Washington, D.C. and answer questions and invite suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.

“There are huge issues facing Oregonians and the best way for me to effectively advocate for Oregon’s families and businesses is by getting out on the road and holding a town hall in every county, every year to hear directly from Oregonians,” said Merkley.  “I invite all residents of Columbia County to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and nation.”

“Listening to constituents is an important part of my work,” Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici said. “Town hall meetings provide the opportunity for me to hear about the issues facing this diverse district and learn how I can help. Constituents always provide valuable feedback that informs the work I do when I’m back in Washington, D.C.”

Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. The town hall in Vernonia will be his  224th town hall as a U.S. Senator.
