merkley town hallMEDFORD, Ore. — It was standing room only at the Old Carnegie Library for Senator Jeff Merkley’s town hall in Medford on Sunday.

The U.S. Senator answered questions ranging from concerns about the environment, the economy, transportation and infrastructure in the state.

Merkley told the audience his number one concern is creating living wage jobs. This marks his 187th town hall as senator.

“Really these meetings are more about my opportunity to listen to folks and so I’ll be mentioning some of the issues going on in D.C., but mainly I’m here to listen to what is on people’s minds,” said Senator Merkley.

Merkley also presented a flag to Medford schools that had been flown over the capitol. Senator Merkley was scheduled for another town hall in Eugene.
