As Oregon prepares to select its next Governor and vote on other critical races, AARP members and voters across the state want to know where these candidates stand on key issues. And AARP’s here to help.
Telephone Town Hall Issue Forums
First up: Live telephone town hall issue forums with first Chris Dudley and then John Kitzhaber to discuss Oregon’s long-term care system and home and community-based services. These issues are critical to Oregon’s future – not only for Oregon’s seniors and disabilities, but their families, our communities and economy.
Co-hosted by the Campaign for Oregon’s Seniors & People with Disabilities, the telephone town hall issue forums will be:
Monday, Sept. 27 – 10:15 to 11:15 a.m.
Thursday, Sept. 30 – 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss! Additional slots are limited, but to join these conversations with the candidates, please just register here. You must provide your name and telephone number - AARP will call you directly on these dates and times and you can join the calls toll-free. Simply choose the orange "Register" tab and we'll do the rest as phone lines allow.
And if you’ve got a question to ask the candidates on this or other issues, please let us know – we want to hear from you. We’ll try to work them in.
Both telephone town halls will also be streamed live here so be sure to check back on Sept. 27 and 30.
AARP Oregon has also asked the gubernatorial candidates to answer five questions – on health and long-term care, budgeting and taxes, older workers, and civic engagement – in their own words. We’ll post their responses verbatim in early October. Make sure to check back then.
You’ll also find questions and answers from the candidates for Oregon State Treasurer, Oregon’s five U.S. House of Representatives seats, and from Ron Wyden and Jim Huffman in this year’s U.S. Senate race.
