U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, will hold a town hall meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the South Umpqua High School gym in Myrtle Creek.
The visit is part of a four-county tour that also includes stops in Salem, Bandon and Port Orford.
Since joining the Senate in 2009, Merkley has held a town hall in each of Oregon's 36 counties every year. In Myrtle Creek, he will update Douglas County residents on his work in Washington, D.C., answer questions and invite suggestions about challenges facing Oregon and America.
"In our 'We the People' democracy, town hall meetings are an essential tool for me to hear from Oregonians and represent their interests back in D.C.," Merkley said in a written statement. "I invite everyone in these counties to come and discuss what we need to do to strengthen our state and our nation."
