Thousands of Granite Staters Join Congresswoman Kuster during latest Telephone Town Hall
Washington, DC – Last night, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) hosted a telephone town hall, her ninth since taking office. Congresswoman Kuster was joined by thousands of constituents, who were given the opportunity to speak directly with the Congresswoman about their priorities as well as how Congress can best support them and address the most pressing issues facing them today.
During the call, Kuster took questions from her constituents and discussed her work to support Granite State veterans, hold the VA accountable, and combat the growing opioid epidemic, among other issues. Second District residents were encouraged to join the call to share their thoughts directly with the Congresswoman, and Kuster heard from Granite Staters on a variety of issues, including families seeking help for loved ones suffering from addiction, veterans seeking job placement services, and individuals concerned with the proposed Northeast Energy Direct pipeline project.
“Last night’s telephone town hall was a wonderful opportunity to hear directly from my constituents about the issues facing them, as well as to hear what they think Congress should focus on in the coming year,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “As we reflect on the past year and look ahead to 2016, this is an important time to identify the initiatives and issues to prioritize moving forward. These town halls are a special way for me to let my constituents know what I’ve been working on in Congress and to hear how I can best serve Granite State residents. I thank everyone who took part in last night’s telephone town hall and shared their thoughts, which I will take with me as I fight on behalf of New Hampshire in Congress.”
This is the ninth telephone town hall Kuster has hosted since taking office. She routinely holds roundtables, forums, and in-person meetings in the district in order to ensure the thoughts and concerns of her constituents are heard, so she can fight for their best interests in Washington.
