While the New York Times tried to downplay the role of local town halls this August, the truth is that there are plenty of opportunities to contact your Member of Congress during recess. In fact, FAIR counts a total of 708 events happening across the country between August 1 – September 30, 2013.
The last two weeks in August are particularly busy for town hall events since many communities start back to school and end the summer vacation season. Click here or scroll down to see the map FAIR’s assembled listing every town hall in the country this week.
This week, key members of the House are holding town hall meetings. If you live near their district, please make every effort to attend.

Went to a town hall meeting in Rancho Bernardo San Diego California
last Sat. there were lots of people but our fearless speaker did not show up
and did not even send a representative to tell us why.
I was suppose to talk to our rep. on a phone town hall sort of thing and he never showed to talk on the phone. Shows you, THEY DON’T CARE. They are in this for themselves which is wrong. I never found out why he did a no show either.
