CitySpeak Livestream: Rep. Rayfield & Local Pandemic Response Leaders

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, CitySpeak previews Oregon’s upcoming legislative session, and examines the COVID-19 pandemic locally. 

Corvallis State Rep. Dan Rayfield handily won his fourth term. He’ll discuss the current political landscape in Oregon, and unwrap what to expect during next year’s legislative session. In a pandemic fueled climate, lawmakers will deal with more uncertainty than usual, and even before that, most political observers were anticipating a plethora of issues around healthcare, the budget, and election law. 

Prior to Rayfield’s appearance, CitySpeak will seek a COVID-19 update from the local experts; Benton County Health Directors Charlie Fautin and Danielle Brown, and Samaritan Health’s infectious disease specialist Adam Brady, MD. Panelists will discuss local trends and institutional preparations, along with and updated view of the virus itself.
