Congress on Recess:
Only one Town Hall in northeast Ohio
NumbersUSA closely monitors legislation concerning immigration “reform," amnesty, and border security issues. Their website lists town halls and forums across the country during the August recess, and there is only one listed in northeastern Ohio on the Tri-C West campus:
Rep. Jim Renacci Veterans Forum
Location: 11000 West Pleasant Valley Road, Parma, OH 44130 (at York Rd.)
Event Date: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 6:00pm to 8:00pm EDT
Contact Phone: (330) 334-0040
If you attend this forum, you will want to express (1) your opposition to ANY immigration bill brought to the floor in the House (which could then be passed into conference with the Senate and its Gang of Eight, and we’d end up with some brand of amnesty and insecure borders), and (2) support for passing a Continuing Resolution on October 1 that defunds Obamacare but otherwise keeps the government funded.
Representative Bill Johnson (R) is holding numerous town halls downstate, in and around Marietta. If you or friends and relatives are in that area, please share this link with them.
