Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) held a town hall meeting, and I finally got to attend. It seemed everytime he announced a town hall I had other plans that could not be cancelled. I got lucky this time.
I arrived just as the meeting was starting, and ended up sitting way in the back, which was okay because I wanted to take photos while I was there. There were approximately 150 people in attendance in the recreation center, and Rep. Gingrey went above and beyond addressing everyone’s concerns. In fact, the town hall meeting was scheduled from 6:30 to 8:00 pm and he stayed late to make sure he got a chance to answer as many questions as possible.
He addressed questions about the health-care bill, the reconciliation fiasco that gave the government control of the entire student loan program, social security and medicare.
The one thing I like most about Rep. Gingrey, is that he tells it like it is. He calls a terrorist a terrorist, and isn’t afraid to mince words when he speaks about muslim extremism.
If you haven’t attended a town hall meeting with your elected Congressman, I highly recommend doing so. It really is the best way for them to learn what their constituents are really feeling.
I took a lot of video while I was there, but the audio isn’t the greatest. The sound system didn’t play too well with the acoustics of a basketball court. If I can get the audio to sound a bit better I might post a couple of the video clips later this week. I was going to mess with it tonight but I have the beginning of one of my headaches, so all I want to do now is sleep.
