Telephone Town Hall With Rep. Connolly Tuesday

Rep. Gerry ConnollyAs the 114th Congress draws to a close, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va 11th) will hold his 22nd Telephone Town Hall Meeting for constituents Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m.

Thousands of residents of Reston, parts of Fairfax County, Prince William County and Fairfax City will automatically receive calls inviting them to stay on the line as the one-hour meeting is about to begin.

If you want to guarantee you are called, you can let the Congressman’s office know by 2 p.m. Monday on his website.

Connolly will open the session with a short report on the recent actions in Congress, his legislative activities in the House, and other matters affecting Northern Virginia and the nation. The remainder of the hour-long session is dedicated to Connolly responding to questions asked by residents on the call. Constituents can also ask questions via Twitter to @GerryConnolly.

Connolly’s 21 previous tele-town hall meetings have been very popular with constituents, who note that they don’t have to drive to the event, they can participate from the comfort of their homes, and they can bow out quietly when they are ready to leave the discussion. Generally, telephone town halls draw a much higher rate of participation than the turnout at physical town halls and other constituent meetings, Connolly’s office said.
