U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today announced he will continue his series of tele-town halls with the next one happening Tuesday Feb. 28. The tele-town hall will tentatively begin at 5 p.m., depending on the voting schedule in the U.S. House of Representatives. It will last approximately one hour.

“Engaging with folks who are taking an active role in our democratic process is of the utmost importance to me,” said Upton. “These innovative tele-town halls allow for thousands of Southwest Michigan residents to ask me direct questions on any issue, participate in interactive polls so I can see where they stand, and hear my stance on specific legislation. During the last two tele-town halls this month, I’ve fielded dozens of questions and heard from a wide variety of my constituents. Some agree, and some don’t – but it’s crucial that I’m able to hear their concerns directly and then take action.”

Upton previously held a tele-town hall on February 6th where more than 1,300 participants and another on February 15th where more than 1,700 participated.

Those interested in signing up for the tele-town hall or looking for additional information should contact any of Upton’s three offices, or by visiting Upton’s website: Upton.house.gov.
