Richard Devlin, D-Tualatin, makes a point about the Public Employees Retirement System Tuesday evening during a town hall at the Oswego Heritage House. Both Devlin and Rep. Chris Garrett, D-Lake Oswego, (seated) were on hand to answer questions about state government. The Legislature has been tackling a number of PERS-related issues this session to try to bring some of its escalating costs under control. Devlins District 19 spans Lake Oswego, West Linn, Tualatin and portions of Southwest Portland; Garretts District 38 includes Lake Oswego and portions of Southwest Portland. The two legislators periodically hold town hall sessions together within the overlap portions of their districts.
