REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) – Rep. Cliff Bentz, R-Ore., who succeeded Greg Walden in January, will hold his first Central Oregon town halls on Friday in Prineville and Madras and on Saturday in Redmond, his office announced Tuesday.

The Crook County town hall is set for 9-10 a.m. Friday at Carey Foster Hall on Southeast Lynn Boulevard in Prineville.

Bentz also has scheduled a Jefferson County town hall, to be held outdoors at Juniper Hills Park, East B Street at 1:45 p.m. Friday.

The Deschutes County town hall, also a one-hour event, is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center, North Sister Conference Center.

An aide said this is Bentz's first official town hall swing, visiting 11 of the 20 counties in the sprawling district.

"Congressman Bentz is committed to listening to and engaging with the constituents of Oregon’s Second Congressional District," the announcement said. "He invites media / residents of the county to attend this town hall for an update on the Congressman’s work in Washington, D.C.

The Redmond town hall also will be streamed on Facebook Live at

The format of the events will be brief remarks, followed by constituent Q&A. Attendees are asked to please budget additional time, in case the town hall runs longer.

At the time of the advisory, the state of Oregon recommends mask wearing in public, indoor settings regardless of vaccination status.

  1. 9-10 a.m. in Prineville ??? Simply go to the rodeo grounds- set up a table and a mic- file the locals into the bleachers- and stop all the mask foolishness !

    1. Well BGHWUHAN Cliff Bentz can be seen in local TV commercials encouraging people to wear masks, social distance and get vaccinated. How does that play into your narrative?

      1. Wear masks- social distance- wash yer damn paws… all good. He’ll have to explain the chemical cocktail of non FDA approved jabs tho !

        1. And I suppose it’s so much better to support an exposed pervert like Matt Gaetz who is proud of the fact he hasn’t resigned. What kind of “thing” would you call that? “Idiotic behavior” isn’t confined to one party.

    1. You mean the guy who was condemned by his own party and forced to resign, unlike all the guilty republicans who get away with all their crimes?

  2. So exciting, H8 Clown and Wishy will be in the front row bouncing up and down hoping for any little mention of their fallen hero the impeached Pumpkin!

  3. Always liked Bentz, but he lost my support for his refusal to vote for the impeachment of Trump. The single most important decision he could make in his career was to hold the creep in chief accountable for the traitorous insurrection of 1/6.
