WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) wrapped up his 2017 town hall meeting schedule over the weekend, bringing his total number of in-person town hall meetings this year to 115.
Congressman Sensenbrenner regularly holds in-person town hall meetings in 49 unique communities throughout his district. He averages three visits per community each year and approximately 100 total meetings annually – more in-person meetings than any other Member of Congress.
Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Holding town hall meetings is not only important for the sake of democracy, but its invaluable to me as I work to best represent the interests of my district. I believe that good policy requires input from both sides of the aisle, and continuing open discussions on the problems we face will enable us as a nation to find real solutions.
“Town hall meetings can be difficult; however, they’re vitally important. People deserve to have their voices heard in the halls of Congress, but that can’t happen unless they’re first heard by their representatives. For this reason, I will continue to frequently hold town halls for as long as I have the privilege of serving the people of Wisconsin’s Fifth District as their representative.”
