Garrett, Doherty, Williamson to host town hall

Reps. Chris Garrett, D-Lake Oswego, Margaret Doherty, D-Tigard, and Rep. Jennifer Williamson, D-Portland, invite residents to join them for a town hall and open forum.

The meeting will be held Jan. 29 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Highway in Portland.

Light refreshments will be served.

In a related matter, Garrett, who resides in Lake Oswego, was sworn in Monday as the speaker pro-tempore of the House of Representatives, meaning he would serve as speaker whenever House Speaker Tina Kotek, D-Portland, was not available.

Garrett will also serve as chair of the rules committee, vice chair of the judiciary committee and co-chair a joint House-Senate committee on public safety. This last committee is tasked with considering proposals for criminal justice reform that were recently issued by the Governor’s Commission on Public Safety.
