Congressional representative to host town hall

This petition had 74 supporters

The constituents of Florida's 2nd Congressional District are petitioning our Congressional representative, Neal Dunn, to hold a public town hall meeting as soon as possible.

Town hall meetings were essential to the formation of this great country, and they remain just as relevant today. James Madison and Alexander Hamilton believed that "the representative ought to be acquainted with the interests and circumstances of his constituents (Federalist 56)." Members of Congress have a duty to act in alignment with the ideologies and priorities of their districts.

Congressman Dunn has not hosted or attended a public town hall meeting yet, and requests to his staff have gone unanswered. Instead, Rep. Dunn has scheduled meetings with large businesses and interest groups.

According to the United States House of Representatives Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy: "Understanding the importance of balancing responsibilities in Washington with duties back home, this [year's] calendar also provides a district work period nearly every month so that elected Representatives can stay connected to their constituents." There are many open dates in the coming weeks. 

We ask that Congressman Neal Dunn host a public town hall in Panama City, FL.
