Updated July 26: Senator Coburn's office has cancelled the Bartlesville town hall meeting because of another community meeting scheduled earlier.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn plans a series of town hall meetings in Oklahoma as he prepares to resign from the Senate at the end of the current term.

The meetings will take place the first two full weeks in August. Coburn says one of the highlights of serving as senator is traveling the state and speaking with Oklahomans about issues that are important to them.
