Gary Peters' Town Hall Meeting

Date: 
Sat, Jul 14, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:30am

U.S. Senator Gary Peters has announced that he is holding four community meetings across Michigan in June and July to provide additional opportunities to hear from constituents. The events are open to the public.

While Senator Peters has titled them community meetings, they are Town Hall meetings with the opportunity to ask him questions and make short statements. This is a good time to ask why he voted the way he did, as well as to make asks of him.

A time for progressives to press him.
