Representative Glenn “G.T.” Thompson (R-PA05): The Cardboard Substitute
Not at the PA 5th Congressional District Town Hall Meeting in the Forum Building at The Pennsylvania State University today.
Neither Representative Thompson nor any member of his staff showed up for the Town Hall Meeting that he was invited to in the 5th Congressional District in Centre County where he lives. This meeting was held during the February 2017 Congressional Recess when he was in the district. These recesses are designed to give Congressional members time to go home and “tackle constituent concerns” back in the district.
Town halls are often used to help “tackle” these issues in an efficient, open and transparent way. When a Representative fails to set up a face-to-face town hall meeting, his/her constituents set it up for him/her and invite the Representative and/or his staff. This is what happened here in Centre County today.
