Citizen town hall scheduled April 8

A coalition of community advocacy groups has organized the April 8 “Constituent Town Hall” in Hood River, scheduled from 4:30-6 p.m. at Hood River Middle School auditorium.

The coalition putting on the April 8 event is comprised of Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network, Columbia Gorge Women’s Action Network, Gorge Ecumenical Ministries, Indivisible Columbia Gorge, Protect Oregon’s Progress, and South Wasco Indivisible.

Organizers said they expect more than 300 constituents from Second Congressional District to voice their concerns, discuss recent developments in Congress, and pose questions for U.S. Second Dist. Rep. Greg Walden, who will not attend citing scheduling conflicts.

“We are currently planning town hall meetings in the Gorge and other areas of the district in April,” Malcolm said in an email on March 27.

As of press time April 4, no dates have yet been announced; Walden’s office did not respond to email requests for town hall updates and information on Walden’s April schedule.

This event begins at 4:30 p.m.; the Happenings listing in the print edition of this issue gives an incorrect time.
