Fifth District Race- #1969 - Tom Perriello Releases Town Hall Meetings Schedule - NBC29 News

Congressman Tom Perriello is once again inviting constituents to one of his 20 town hall meetings across the Fifth District during the summer Congressional recess. The meetings will begin Wednesday, August 4 in Appomattox and conclude Monday, September 13 in Bedford. In response to constituent feedback from last summer, town halls have been scheduled at various times throughout the day to accommodate the diverse needs and schedules of constituents, such as seniors, working parents, and small business owners. "Town hall meetings are a unique part of American democracy and I look forward to a lively and engaging discussion with folks in every locality across the district," said Rep. Perriello. "I always appreciate feedback from constituents, which is why I hold town halls and Main Street tours in addition to my one-on-one constituent meetings." Last August, Congressman Perriello held twenty-one town hall meetings across the district. He has also held nine telephone town hall meetings during his term. In addition to these public meetings, he meets regularly with individual constituents or groups in his Washington, D.C. office or one of his four district offices. He also makes himself available through regular public appearances and events such as the 14-stop Main Street Tour he completed last week.

To view the rest, go to.......  Nice going Tom, who is going to chance waiting in line, waiting to speak, listening to your long answers, all before going to work.    Or in the middle of the day, if you work in Charlottesville, going back to your county, on your lunch hour, to try to give input or listen to you trying to explain your votes on Cap and Trade, Health Care and the Stimulus Bill...........  If you do work in other county and can't go early or on your lunch hour, the Charlottesville Town Hall is at night.  Did the majority of your constituents really suggest this, or is this when the PAID Union Reps could come?
