North Texas Voters Demand More Town Hall Meetings with Congressmen
Some Texas voters are upset they are not getting face-to-face meetings with lawmakers while Congress is in recess and the lawmakers are in their home districts.
U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Forth Worth, said, in a statement, "I am hosting my next Coffee with your Congressman this Friday at Tia Dora's in Dallas from 7:30-9 a.m. That's an opportunity for residents to stop and chat with me on their way to work on how I can better represent them in Congress. I also vary my 'mobile town hall' events such as Congress on Your Commute, where I ride DART or the 'T' in Fort Worth and talk with residents on their way to or from work, Coffee with Your Congressman, and Congress on Your Corner, where I chat with residents at a local grocery store. I also host my signature "Town Halls" during the month of August during the longer District Work Period."
