Merkley cancels town halls for budget negotiations

April 8, 2011


How determined was the HRV softball team to play a game earlier this week? Determined enough to play through a combination of snow, sleet, rain and hail Wednesday. Megan Winans tries to keep warm at first base during the worst the weather could dish out. HRV and Milwaukie finished the game, going all seven innings with HRV winning 7-0.

From Sen. Jeff Merkley's office:

Due to on-going budget negotiations, Senator Merkley is postponing his townhalls this weekend in Sherman, Wasco, Jefferson and Hood River Counties. We'll reschedule soon.

Merkley was scheduled to hold town halls in Hood River and The Dalles Saturday.
