Town Hall Meeting with Congressman Wilson in SC 2nd

This petition had 93 supporters

We, constituents of South Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District, petition our Congressional representative, Joe Wilson, to meet in a public Town Hall meeting as soon as possible.

District 2 voters of all political parties harbor deep reservations about the President’s policy agenda. Key issues include the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, a ban on citizens of several Muslim majority nations, the Trump administration’s repudiation of climate change, the recent Republican proposal to shift Medicaid to a system of block grants, and many others.

Moreover, we are extremely concerned by allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. democratic process, and possible collusion of the Trump administration officials with a hostile foreign government.

As constituents of Rep. Wilson, we would like to share questions and concerns with him, hear about his policy agenda, and discuss the issues that will be most important to South Carolina and the nation in the coming years.

Town hall meetings are central to the health of a representative democracy. We live in an age of constant e-mails, texts and social media. Yet there is no substitute for face-to-face interaction between constituents and their elected representative. Congressman Wilson has not hosted or attended a public Town Hall meeting in quite a long time, and according to his staff, has no current plans to do so. Written requests for such a meeting have gone unacknowledged. In these extraordinary times, it is crucial that Rep. Wilson meet his constituents in an open setting to hear and respond to their concerns.
