With our President facing impeachment, West Virginians have a lot of questions. But As far as we can tell, none of West Virginia’s congressional representatives have held an in-person public town hall meeting for a long time.
Alex Mooney (R-WV), with parts of his district within an hour-and-a-half drive of the U.S. Capitol, held a “telephone town hall” on Sept. 24. It’s unclear who was invited to participate and how it was publicized, since there are no press releases on his website going back two years that mention a town hall meeting.
On Mooney’s Facebook page, there was a post thanking residents of Lewis, Upshur, Randolph, Pendleton and Hardy counties who participated, but no notice of the upcoming event in the weeks prior.
The same avoidance of public forums is true of David Mckinley (R-WV) and Carol Miller (R-WV).
No matter where you stand on impeachment or other issues, voters deserve the opportunity to hear their Congressional representatives’ point of view and to express their own.
Call today to tell your representative how you feel about what’s going on in Washington.
Ask or demand that they come home to West Virginia and give everyone the opportunity to express their views. Here’s a quick link to make that call: https://www.callmycongress.com/
