Bonamici town hall meetings get rescheduled

U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici’s schedule of town hall meetings with Washington County constituents has been shaken up a bit.

On Sept. 25, the Democratic 1st District congresswoman’s office announced she had been called back to Washington, D.C., for a series of emergency votes on a government funding package needed to keep the federal government going and had to postpone several public forums planned in the area.

“I regret any inconvenience, but it is important for me to be in Washington for the discussions, negotiations and votes to prevent a government shutdown,” Bonamici said.

Two upcoming meetings that had been scheduled for late September have been rescheduled to October.

Bonamici’s town hall event in Banks, originally set for Sept. 28, has been moved instead to Saturday, Oct. 19. Bonamici will be at the Banks Fire Station at 300 S. Main Street from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Also, a town hall planned for Sept. 29 in Beaverton has been moved to Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The event will be held at the Nature Park Interpretive Center, 15655 S.W. Millikan Way in Beaverton.

Bonamici also plans a town hall forum in Yamhill on Oct. 20 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Yamhill-Carlton High School gymnasium, 275 N. Maple Street.

Bionomic said she values the meetings because she wants to hear directly from residents of the district regarding the issues they are most concerned about.

“I’m holding these meetings to discuss issues, answer questions and gather ideas,” Bonamici said. “Hearing directly from my constituents will help me better represent the needs of this diverse district.”
