Sen. Merkley Multnomah County Town Hall

From Senator Merkley:

On Monday, November 23, I'll be hosting a town hall at the Native American Youth and Family Center in Portland. I invite all residents to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and our nation.

Also, if you are running into red tape accessing veterans benefits, dealing with the Social Security or Medicare administrations, or facing foreclosure, I will have caseworkers on hand who may be able to help.

Bill Dickey has been a major benefactor to this community and this state.  From the arts to social services, education to politics, all have been on the receiving end of his generosity, his involvement and his profound interest in making Portland and Oregon a better and fairer place for all.  All without fanfare.

Now it's time to say Thank You.
