Rep. Greg Walden to host telephone town hall
December 04, 2012
U.S. Rep. Greg Walden today announced that he will hold a telephone town hall discussion on Thursday, Dec. 6, from 1 to 2 p.m.
Rep. Walden will answer questions from residents of Oregon’s Second District on a variety of topics, including ways to get our economy going in southern, central, and eastern Oregon.
“I’ve gotten very positive feedback from people who enjoy listening to what others around our enormous district have to say, and the questions they ask. Some people prefer this way to communicate because it’s too difficult for them to attend the town halls I do in person. For others, the travel distance is too far, or they just aren’t comfortable in that kind of a setting. These telephone town halls are another effective way for me to hear from the people I work to represent in the Second District. All a person has to do is answer the phone and they’re automatically connected. Calls will begin going out just before 1 p.m., on Thursday inviting them to participate in the discussion,” Rep. Walden said.
Rep. Walden held town halls in every county last this year, and more than one in some counties.
Constituents who would like to ensure that they are called may RSVP for the telephone town hall by 5 p.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 5. To register, contact Rep. Walden’s office toll-free at 800-533-3303.
Second District residents may also ask a question to Rep. Walden before the townhall by e-mailing him through the website, posting on his Facebook, or sending him a message on Twitter. Rep. Walden will answer as many questions as time allows during the telephone town hall.
