Rep. DeSaulnier to host Emergency Town Hall on partial government shutdown Saturday, Jan. 19

Event will provide local federal workers and residents with resources and information

Today, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (D, CA-11) announced that he will host an emergency town hall on the partial federal government shutdown this Saturday, January 19th at 2:00 p.m. in Lafayette.

The shutdown has left 37,000 hardworking California families without a paycheck, increased wait times at airports and jeopardized air safety, closed our national parks, put tax returns at risk, and put millions of families at risk of losing or seeing reduced food assistance.

This emergency town hall will serve as an opportunity to provide residents and federal workers with the latest on the Trump Shutdown. Additionally, local organizations will be on hand to assist federal workers or those who may be impacted by the shutdown. This will be Congressman DeSaulnier’s 75th town hall and mobile district office hour since coming to Congress four years ago.

    Sad that Mark isn’t addressing the “emergency” of illegal aliens attempting to enter our country 🙁

    An since when did it become necessary to “RSVP” for a Town Hall meeting?
