Record number of participants take place in telephone town hall

NORTH COAST – More than 10,100 people participated in a Monday night telephone town hall hosted by Congressman Mike Thompson (D-CA).


The majority of callers had questions about health care reform, according to Thompson's office.


The congressman also fielded questions on climate change, renewable energy, the peripheral canal and the state of our economy.


“It was great to hear from so many people and have a chance to talk about the issues facing our country,” said Thompson. “While I didn’t have a chance to get to everyone’s question, it was an important opportunity for me to hear from constituents about what’s important to them. People are understandably concerned about their access to quality, affordable health care, and I’ll continue to keep my constituent’s feedback in mind as Congress fine-tunes its reform legislation.”


Thompson will respond in writing to 565 voice mails left by participants after the call that were not able to ask their question during the hour long forum.
