Welch announces regional Telephone Town Halls

September 8, 2009
Press Release
Rep. Peter Welch on Tuesday announced a series of four regional Telephone Town Hall forums to be held throughout September.

After spending August traveling throughout the state, Welch will listen to Vermonters' views about Congress' agenda this fall and will take questions about pending legislation. Based on successful statewide telephone forums Welch has held in the past - which focused on the economy, health care reform and small businesses - these forums will allow residents of four regions to weigh in on the issues that matter most to them, including regional issues.

Welch will hold the first of these forums - for Franklin County residents - tonight at 7:40 p.m. In the following weeks, he will hold forums for Bennington and Rutland counties and the Northeast Kingdom. Additional regional Telephone Town Halls will be announced as they are scheduled.

Those wishing to participate in the calls should dial 1-877-269-7289 and enter PIN code 13785 at the start of the meeting.

The schedule of the calls is as follows:

  • Franklin County - Tuesday, Sept. 8, 7:40 p.m.
