Town hall meetings
Per the townhallproject.com/ website, so far there aren’t many town hall meetings scheduled to meet with our Members of Congress (MoC). In the central Florida area, there is one with Rep. Stephanie Murphy, Dist. 7, Orlando; Rep. Dennis Ross, Dist. 15, Lakeland; and Rep. Ron DeSantis, Dist. 6, Deltona. Sens. Nelson and Rubio have not scheduled any as of yet. That is unacceptable. Given the scope of legislative changes coming from Washington, many of them regressive and harmful to advances we’ve made over many years, we need to be able to speak to our MoC to tell them what’s important to us and what we need them to support or oppose when they get back to Washington. They may feel they know their lobbyists better than us as they’re surrounded by them day in and day out in the Capitol, but they work for us, not them. When will we get to speak to them? Why don’t we ask?
Call Sen. Rubio’s local office: 407-254-2573
Sen. Nelson’s local office: 407-872-7161
If you don’t get satisfaction from your call, there are always endless streams of various petitions to sign to beg them to do their job. Here’s another one asking them to hold a local town hall meeting: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/698/948/715/ask-senator-rubio-and-senator-nelson-to-schedule-town-hall-meeting-in-florida/
