Town Hall in North Plains

It’s important to me to hear what’s on your mind, especially when it comes to issues facing children and families in our community and around the state. In preparation for the 2019 legislative session, I invite you to join me, Representative Sollman, and Children First for Oregon for a conversational town hall on Wednesday, June 13, to talk about what is working and what needs to change to help children thrive. The town hall will be held at the Jessie Mays Community Hall and Park - 30975 NW Hillcrest Street in North Plains from 6 PM to 7:30 PM. I look forward to seeing you and hearing your thoughts.

Free Dental Care for Veterans

Aspen Dental practices in Oregon, and in other states, are offering free dental care to veterans on Saturday, June 9 - Aspen Dental’s National Day of Service.  Interested veterans are encouraged to call 1-844-AspenHMM (1-844-277-3646) to find a participating practice in their community and to schedule a free appointment. Be sure to call in advance as space is limited.
