Senator Ron Wyden announces virtual town hall open to all Oregonians

WASHINGTON, D.C. — With coronavirus continuing to impact public gatherings and appearances, Oregon's U.S. Senator says that he will hold a virtual town hall open to all Oregonians on this coming Friday morning.

The online event, hosted by Town Hall Project, begins at 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time on April 17.

“I always look forward very much to my open-to-all town halls where Oregonians in every part of our state can voice their views, ask me questions and talk about their priorities directly with me,” Wyden said. “The coronavirus public health crisis puts those in-person community meetings on hold for the moment, but we can still have these civil conversations that focus on finding productive solutions that make sense for Oregonians.”

Wyden's office says he has held 970 town halls as Senator, "in fulfillment of his pledge" to hold one per year in each of Oregon's 36 counties. Wyden has twice won the Town Hall Project's MVP Award.

“Those conversations are an essential part of the ‘Oregon Way’ that makes our state so unique and admired,” he said. “And although the format this time will be different with me calling in from Washington DC where I have been fighting to get Oregon and the nation what’s needed for the coronavirus response as quickly as possible, I expect the conversation will be as robust as ever, given the real-time health and economic challenges Oregonians are facing.”

Anyone who would like to attend the town hall on Friday can fill out the form here. You can also watch it live on Facebook.

The online town hall is open to all Oregonians, and Town Hall Project stressed that front-line health care workers, "essential workers," those recently unemployed, small business owners, gig workers, parents with children home from school, or anyone who has experienced COVID-19 in their family should attend and make their voices heard.

Wyden has suspended all in-person town halls until public health guidelines about public gatherings change.
