(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – As Congress makes critical decisions on unemployment benefit extensions, financial reform, and cap-and-trade you can sound off to one person casting their vote.
Rep. Baron Hill
Indiana Ninth District Congressman Baron Hill (D-Seymour) has invited constituents to participate in a tele-town hall. The question and answer session will take place over the phone next Monday, July 26 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The method of speaking directly with constituents has become increasingly popular among members of congress since large, raucous crowds began attending such in-person meetings leading up to the vote on health care reform.
People without access to a computer or who have questions can call Hill’s Washington office at (202) 225-5315.
Some of the people participating will be able to ask Hill questions during the tele-conference.
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, 5,100 AARP members in the Ninth District participated in a similar telephone conference last year with 14 getting to ask the congressman a question.
