Second District residents can also sign up for telephone town hall meetings through Walden’s website. “I receive very positive feedback from people in our district about telephone town halls, which reach thousands of people in the comfort of their own homes. These are especially important for those who have difficulty with transportation. Telephone town halls give people whose voice might not otherwise be heard a chance to give their input on the issues they care about,” Walden said.
Constituents can also follow Walden on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn more about his work around Oregon’s Second District.
