During the August recess, members of Congress come home to listen to their constituents. Unlike some Senators (Gordon Smith, we're looking at you) - Senator Ron Wyden isn't afraid of the public.
Senator Wyden would like to hear what you think about the War in Iraq.
Wyden is hosting the Iraq Town Hall Meetings to get input from his constituents before the U.S. Senate returns its focus to the Iraq war in September. With a critical Pentagon report on the status of the war due on September 15, and U.S. Department of Defense spending and authorization bills still pending in Congress, September is shaping up to be a crucial and contentious month in the Iraq debate.
Oregonians are invited to attend the open forums to voice their comments, questions and concerns in advance of the upcoming Congressional debate on Iraq. People who wish to speak will be asked to limit their comments to two minutes (the public will also be invited to submit written comments).
