Congressman Visclosky announced today that he will hold 12 Town Forums throughout Indiana’s First Congressional District during the month of January.
Visclosky hosts the Town Forums each year as an avenue to hear directly from constituents and to provide an update on issues facing the region and the country.
“I host these annual Town Forums so that I may share updates on the previous and forthcoming legislative sessions and, moreover, to hear from the public on the important issues of today,” said Congressman Pete Visclosky.
As in previous years, local students will lead the Pledge of Allegiance and introduce Visclosky to their communities. Each student will give a brief introduction speech that will include information on the history and economy of the First Congressional District.
“Some of Northwest Indiana’s best and brightest will join us during the 2015 Town Forums. I am excited to have their participation throughout the week, and I appreciate their willingness to take an active role in our democratic process.”
