PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., announced Monday he will have live online town halls, hosted by People’s Town Hall, early next month for residents of Clackamas, Linn, Lincoln, Tillamook, Hood River, Jefferson, Deschutes, Klamath, Lake, Josephine and Polk counties.

Wyden has held 970 in-person town halls statewide in fulfillment of his pledge to hold at least one town hall each year in each of Oregon’s 36 counties.

The senator said he has postponed in-person town halls until there are clear-cut public health guidelines that a large open-to-all public meeting poses no unusual health risk for Oregonians.

After the pandemic in March 2020 required Wyden’s town halls to go virtual, he has continued to hold regional and county virtual town halls.

“I very much look forward to resuming the ongoing conversations with Oregonians in communities large and small to hear residents’ priorities with the new Biden administration and Senate in its first weeks with the American Rescue Plan and more,” Wyden said. “While precautions require a temporary hold on in-person town halls, I thank People’s Town Hall for helping these ‘Oregon Way’ discussions to continue online for Oregonians living and working throughout our state.”

The virtual town hall schedule is as follows: 

For Oregonians in all those counties who want to submit questions for Senator Wyden, here’s the link.

"Town halls are essential to our democracy,” said Nathan Williams of People's Town Hall, a virtual town hall series from the founders of Town Hall Project. “But during this global pandemic, we strongly encourage all lawmakers adhere to current health guidelines -- including holding town halls virtually as long as necessary for public safety."

“People's Town Hall invites all of Senator Wyden's constituents to this town hall -- all parties welcome, no issue off limits.” Williams said. “We expect another substantive, vigorous discussion of the issues that matter most to Oregonians."

    1. Now that wasn’t nice…..but he’s is a GREAT example of why there should be limits on how many times people serve.
      Merkely & Wyden need to be checking into a assisted living accommodations instead of running again

    2. Wyden LOVES saying “no one is above the law” but has yet to be held to account for human smuggling when he smuggled illegal aliens across the border saying “I’m a senator” to get ICE to back off him. He is disgusting and the Oregon press is even more disgusting for NEVER challenging this New York resident. Wyden is a criminal and needs to be prosecuted

    3. I was thinking the same thing, guy looks like a ghost. He actually is a ghost, hardly ever in Oregon, lives in New York. Change his name to Casper.

  1. Will Wyden admit to being the racist that all white people are? According to Critical Race Theory ALL white people are racist. Any denials from Wyden just prove he is racist.

    It is time for progressives to admit to their own racism. Even our trusty moderator, Barney, needs to admit to his racism for the simple fact he is white. Otherwise he will have to explain why he isn’t racist which proves racism. It’s time for progressives to start living by their own rules. Or tell us why the “all white people are racist” is wrong.
