Congressman Brad Sherman will host a Town Hall meeting from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 28th at Reseda High School, located at 18230 Kittridge Street.
The Congressman will discuss the economy, taxes, the national debt, education, Social Security and Medicare as well as other issues facing Congress. Most of the meeting will be devoted to Congressman Sherman listening and responding to questions from Valley residents.
Sherman has held over 100 Town Hall Meetings since going to Congress. In May of this year, Congressman Sherman conducted a Town Hall Meeting at the new Valley Performing Arts Center at Cal State Northridge, fielding questions from some of the approximately 1,200 constituents who attended – one of the most successful and widely attended Town Hall Meetings of Sherman’s 15 years in Congress. The Arts Center, which features a 1,700-seat Great Hall where the Town Hall Meeting took place, officially opened on January 29, 2011. Congressman Sherman helped secure federal funding for the Valley Performing Arts Center, which has hosted numerous performances from world-class performers, musicians and distinguished speakers in its first season.
"Town Hall Meetings are critical to the public policy process, providing an opportunity for me to hear about the most pressing concerns in our community and to elaborate on the work that my colleagues and I are tackling in Congress. I hope to have a good discussion about a wide variety of issues that are important to the daily lives of Valley residents," said Congressman Brad Sherman. "The large attendance at our previous Town Hall Meetings proves that the residents of the San Fernando Valley are actively engaged in their community and their government. I look forward to hearing their ideas."
For the upcoming August 28th Town Hall, Sherman’s district office staff will be on hand to help constituents resolve any problems they may have with federal agencies, including the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The event, refreshments, and parking are free.
