Wu Town Hall

Posted on 28th April 2011 at 08:08

Most of the questions that Oregon Representative David Wu fielded at a Portland town hall meeting yesterday dealt with the economy, the budget deficit, Medicare and military spending. It wasn’t until nearly the end of the 90-minute event that one constituent asked Wu why his top staffers left and why Wu should continue to represent the 1st Congressional District, covering Columbia County and the rest of Northwest Oregon. About 40 people attended the event in Southwest Portland, focusing mostly on the topics in front of Congress at this time. When asked about the recent turmoil, Wu said that he’ll “let the political chips fall where they may.” The Democrat has previously said that he’s “in a good place now” after treatment for campaign antics blamed on stress. Wu has several additional Town Halls planned, starting this evening in Newberg. He’ll be in Hillsboro tomorrow evening. On Saturday, Wu will go out to Astoria in the morning, then he’s scheduled to be at Rainier Junior/Senior High School at 2:30 pm on Saturday.
