Oregon U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley plans to hold a Benton County Town Hall event at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in the Philomath High School auditorium.
Merkley will update constituents on his work in Washington and answer questions from the audience.
“In our ‘We the People’ democracy, town hall meetings are an essential tool for me to hear from Oregonians and represent their interests back in D.C.,” Merkley said through a press release. “I invite everyone in these counties to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and our nation.”
Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. The Philomath town hall will be his 366th.
Merkley will also be holding other town hall meetings this week, including one at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Timber Ridge School in Albany.
