A number of Gorge-area activist groups plan to hold what they term a “constituent town hall” on Saturday in Hood River. The groups who organized the event say Oregon Second District Congressman Greg Walden did not respond to calls for him to hold a Gorge town hall. Walden earlier this week scheduled town halls for this coming Wednesday in The Dalles and Hood River. Groups involved in Saturday’s event include Building Community Connections, Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network, Columbia Gorge Women’s Action Network, Gorge Ecumenical Ministries, Indivisible Columbia Gorge, Protect Oregon’s Progress, and South Wasco Indivisible. Organizers say only Second District residents will be allowed to speak. It will run from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday in the Hood River Middle School Auditorium. The Walden town halls will be Wednesday from 11 a.m. to noon at the Fort Dalles Readiness Center and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hood River Middle School Auditorium.
