The truth about town halls

To the editor:

I recently saw an article that shows that 24 of the top 28 members of Congress who hold town hall meetings are Republican. And to no surprise, who's right there near the top of the list? Our Congressman, Sean Duffy. He's already held eight in-person town halls this year, and he'll hold about 20 more this year. We're lucky to have someone so accessible. It's pretty obvious that the groups clamoring around our district have a political agenda, not an access issue. With so much going on in Washington these days- from finally getting rid of Obamacare, to the fight against ISIS, it's good to know that we have a Congressman who will always level with us - in person - on how he stands on the issues.

Donald Hildebrandt,

Duffy fails to notify his constituents about his town halls in a reasonable time. He will often send out emails only an hour or two before they take place - and they are often during the day when few people can get off work. He is hosting a town hall in name only.
