Washington, D.C. - Congressman Brad Sherman will host a town hall meeting on August 24 at Reseda High School.
The congressman will discuss ways Democrats in Congress are working to provide a new direction for America. In many ways, we are headed the wrong way. Rising gas and health care costs are taking a toll on family budgets. The wages of many middle class families have not kept pace with inflation. Many families struggle to pay the rising price of a college education with less help from the federal government. At a time when Americans in uniform are making the greatest sacrifices imaginable for our country, Congress and President Bush have repeatedly passed tax cuts benefiting only the wealthiest tax payers – the resulting deficits threaten to bury future generations in debt.
Congressman Sherman’s popular town hall meetings often attract crowds of several hundred constituents. They are an opportunity for San Fernando Valley residents to hear a report from Sherman and for constituents to ask questions about federal and community issues.
Sherman’s district office staff will be on hand to help constituents having problems with federal agencies, including the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Free parking and refreshments will be available. Sherman’s congressional district includes roughly half of the San Fernando Valley. He sits on the Financial Services, International Relations and Science committees.
