Press Release

Portland, Ore. – Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) released the following statement:

“Rather than listening to yet another destructive and divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this year’s annual address to Congress.

“Instead, like I did during Trump’s Inauguration, I will be working here at home listening to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the Union.

“Hearing from Oregonians and working together to protect our values and advance policies that actually strengthen our communities is a more productive use of my time.”
