N3 encourages readers to attend, send comments
By N3 Editorial Team
Having an issue with what is happening in Washington these days? Feel like expressing your view to those who are charged with representing you? Or maybe you just want to hear what folks from D.C. are saying these days?
Here’s your chance.
U.S. Representative Bill Huizenga will be holding a Town Hall meeting at noon this Saturday February 25, at Baldwin High School, located at 525 4th Street in Baldwin.
The Zeeland Republican is currently serving his 4th consecutive term in office
Nationwide, these traditional town hall meetings have been drawing considerable crowds as captured by a number of news sources in...
...recent weeks. Many have become boisterous affairs resulted in a number of accusations and counter accusations emerging from both sides of what seems to be an ever widening aisle.
So make plans to attend.
And before you do?
Seek out some accurate and hopefully unbiased research. Find out what your guy in DC stands for.
You can find out who gave him the most campaign money (well, mostly), what bills he sponsored, and ultimately what happened to the bills. If a bill passed through both houses and was signed by the President find out what it meant. Not just the misleading titles they put on bills but what they actually mean because the denizens of that city can render the English language as a nearly incomprehensible entity serving to confuse even the most obsessive of grammatical purists.
Make your voice heard if you will or go to hear what others have to say, but if you truly want to participate in our political system at a venue other than the voting booth and social media, make plans to get yourself to Baldwin on Saturday. Ask questions and listen to the answers. Hear what fellow citizens are saying and hear what your man in Washington has to say about current issues and his legislative plans for the near future.
Then let us know.
After you go, send your remarks, reactions, and reviews to us in our comment section. Not so much your political opinion since we all have access to plenty of venues for that, but more along the lines of your impressions of what went on. How well informed people were, how honest of an exchange it seemed to be, or any other views of the meeting itself.
Give us a glimpse of how you saw it and let’s see how many perspectives we might end up with.
