The Nebraska Democratic Party along with multiple grassroots organizations and candidates running for local office are going to be meeting with concerned people of the Omaha area. We invited all of the members of Congress that represent the Omaha area, but have heard nothing in return. Nebraskans deserve to talk with our Congressional delegation. Earlier this morning the Omaha World Herald reported that no members of Congress from Nebraska have any planed public town halls. It has also been reported that Congressman Don Bacon has no plans on ever holding town halls, out of fear that some distressed constituents will ask him questions.
“It doesn’t make sense that you would allow the fringe to take over a town hall,” Bacon told The World-Herald. “It’s not fair to the people there, and it’s what they’re going to try to do. And I just don’t see putting myself in that situation or those who want to attend.”
WHO: People of Omaha, Nebraska Democratic Party, Women’s March on Omaha, Indivisible Omaha, Indivisible Nebraskans, local candidates for public office
WHAT: Town Hall to discuss the issues facing the people of Omaha
WHEN: Tuesday, February 21st, from 6-8PM
WHERE: Omaha Rockets Kanteen, 2401, Lake St, Omaha, Ne 68111
VISUAL: Local activists and constituents meeting with community leaders talking about the issues that are facing them. People coming out and showing that they care and want to talk to the elected officials about what is happening in this country and Senators Fischer, Sasse and Congressman Bacon avoiding the people they supposedly represent.
