Hi fellow Americans! Glad to be a new post person for the Caldwell Tea Party! Wanted to comment/suggest for upcoming townhall meeting with Representative Patrick McHenry on Thurs. 8/19, 6pm at Broyhill Civic Center in Lenoir. Having attended his townhalls in the past, thought it may help to inform how he conducts meeting.
Upon entering you will likely be asked to sign in. Mr. McHenry will first give a talk about happenings and legislation that went on in Washington, as well as how this relates to our 10th District. Patrick McHenry will then take questions from the audience. Patrick has been good about this, willing to hear from every person that wants to speak, taking as much time as necessary. As a heads up, each of us may want to think about the question we would like ask Mr. McHenry – whether about an issue, future action in Washington, about how he voted or “holding his feet to the fire”.
As well, as politicians do, I’ve seen him answer questions in a ‘slick’ manner that doesn’t answer the question much at all. Also witnessed that sometimes the opposition (more liberal view) to Mr. McHenry shows up and their can be a bit of an argument.
Thanks to all and keep the faith and good fight.
