U.S. Representative Joe Courtney will be holding a Town Hall Meeting in Norwich on Monday, August 26 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Kelly Middle School, 25 Mahan Drive.
Whether you agree with our Representative on issues or not, he needs to hear from us! And it is important for us as Democrats to understand the issues that other towns in Connecticut’s 2nd Congressional District are facing. This is a great opportunity to make your concerns known to Joe, to hear the concerns of others, and to learn where Joe Courtney stands on the issues.
U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal will be the special guest at a reception for Sara Gideon, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Maine running against current Republican Senator Susan Collins. Taking back the U.S. Senate in 2020 will be critical to stopping the destructive politics of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and to setting out country back on a responsible legislative path.
The event will be hosted by Lyndon Haviland & Tom Neff and by John Kiker & Dan Hulseberg at the home of Lyndon Haviland, 325 Grassy Hill Road in Lyme Connecticut. It is scheduled for Thursday evening, August 29 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen Coffey by EMAIL or by phone at 603-508-0697.
