Demand real town halls from Rep. Tipton and Sen. Gardner
February 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm UTC-6
Rep. Scott Tipton claims he has some kind of engagement during congressional recess that prevents him from holding a public town hall event. He has zero public events listed on his schedule. He does have a telephone town hall event but as we know, that will allow him to hide from any questions he doesn’t want to answer and from any real public scrutiny.
Indivisible have a meeting scheduled with Scott Tipton’s staffer on February 17th in Grand Junction at 11 am and then a meeting scheduled. The meeting space is only large enough for 4 people. We will respect their wishes on the number of people attending going in to his office but nothing prevents many more from showing up outside the office for solidarity in demanding a town hall events. You might also bring a written statement along to be read in our meeting or left behind for a staffer.
Then, at 3 pm we will be traveling to Cory Gardner’s office nearby to show him that his real constituents are concerned and that no one has to pay us to show up and care about the future of this country. Same as above, there is not room for more in the meeting space and we will respect that, but feel bring to a statement and a sign to emphasize our message.
This is national strike day to protest the Trump administration. A group with Indivisible District 3 Colorado will be coordinating carpooling and a mass visit to our congressional offices in western Colorado. Want to join them?
