Merkley discussed a range of topics, including his support for the Affordable Care Act and for emergency unemployment benefits.
CVHS students and members of the community listened to the Senator and waited to have their voices heard.
Merkley said he enjoys the town hall format.
“I like to hear from citizens directly about the issues that they’re confronting and are concerned about,” he said. “It’s an excellent part of democracy to be able to have that type of exchange.”
Senator Merkley also made stops on Friday in Harrisburg and Roseburg.
