Rep. Walden schedules series of town halls
January 07, 2013
THE DALLES - U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) will hold town hall meetings in eight counties in Oregon this week, beginning in The Dalles this (Monday) morning at the Columbia Gorge Community College. He will also hold town hall meetings in Sherman, Gilliam, Wheeler, Grant, Umatilla, Morrow, and Hood River counties this week (full details below).
Rep. Walden will discuss his efforts to provide tax relief for Oregon families and small businesses, grow our economy, reduce spending, and balance the budget. Residents will also have the opportunity to ask questions and give their input for Rep. Walden’s “to do” list to take back to Washington, D.C.
These will be the first town hall meetings of 2013. Last year, Rep. Walden held 24 town hall meetings in the 20 counties in Oregon’s Second District.
“While the Congress and the country are facing very difficult, but very important choices going forward, here at home there are many local issues that I’m focused on, as well. Expanding access to broadband in rural areas, boosting our farm and ranch economies, improving management of our federal forests, and taking care of those who wear—or who have worn—our nation’s uniform remain priorities for me,” said Rep. Walden.
