Ruppersberger Hold Town Hall Session

February 23rd, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Concerns over repeal of the Affordable Care Act and immigration policies took center stage during a town hall meeting hosted by Democratic 2nd District U.S. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger Wednesday evening held at the Towson Library. The Baltimore Sun reports, billed as a "Congress on your Corner" meeting, Ruppersberger said he had organized the Towson and other meetings because he was hearing from constituents concerned about what is "going on in Washington," and wanted to make himself accessible.

"It's people power," Ruppersberger said referring to the rallying of those politically engaged constituents. "And I think we need to use that the right way."

More than 100 people attended the event where they were invited to ask questions and weigh in on federal issues.Many people at the event told Ruppersberger, a former Baltimore County executive, who is now in his eighth term as a U.S. representative, they are concerned with new policies of Republican President Donald Trump.
