Public Forum to be Held June 3 at Baker Community Center
Dennis Anderson, Democratic Candidate for Illinois‘14th U.S. Congressional District, will hold a public town hall forum from 7:15 to 8:30 PM on Tuesday, June 3, at The Baker Community Center, 101 S. Second Street. All constituents in the Tri-Cities are invited to attend and encouraged to bring questions for the candidate (who will be there in person).
The Anderson Campaign is observing the time-honored American tradition of the open political town hall forum as a highly effective way for candidates to talk directly to constituents regardless of party affiliation. The St. Charles Town Hall is open to all and scheduled in the evening to meet the needs of working constituents. The campaign will hold town hall meetings throughout the District for the entire the campaign season.
Throughout the country – including here in the Illinois 14th – we’ve seen a reluctance on the part of incumbents to participate in unscripted public forums with constituents, particularly in joint forums with their challengers. The Anderson Campaign believes that town halls are a valuable opportunity for candidates and constituents to meet and to hear from one another.
Upcoming town hall tour stops include Warrenville, Sandwich, Antioch, Elburn, Gurnee, Plainfield, Yorkville and Huntley. For more on future town hall dates, go to: http://www.dennisanderson14.com/calendar_of_events
A resident of Gurnee, Illinois, Dennis Anderson is the Democratic candidate for the United States Congress for Il-14, a seat currently held by Republican Randy Hultgren.
