Thompson town hall sets new record for participation

NORTH COAST – The participation in Congressman Mike Thompson's latest telephone town hall, held Monday, broke records, Thompson's office reported Wednesday.


Nearly 12,000 constituents took part, breaking the previous record of 11,000, according to Thompson's staff.


The questions were on a wide variety of topics, ranging from health care to the federal debt to immigration, Thompson's office reported.


“Each time I hold one of these events, we have more and more participants,” said Congressman Thompson. “They are not a replacement for in-person town hall meetings, but they are a great way to hear from folks all across our district.”


He said the Monday event was a good chance for him to talk with constituents about important things like health care reform and jobs.


“It’s important that we had a chance to share our thoughts,” he said. “I wasn’t able to get to everyone, but I’ll be responding to all of the 131 voice mails that were left at the end of the call.”
