U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, today announced that he will be holding 21 town forums throughout Indiana’s 1st Congressional District in January. Visclosky hosts the forums each year to give constituents an opportunity to ask questions and to provide an update on the issues facing the region and the country.
“Northwest Indiana and the country are faced with many important issues right now, including creating good-paying jobs, balancing the federal budget, and ending the war in Afghanistan. As 2012 turns to 2013 and a new session of Congress begins, I want to hear from my constituents on the issues that matter most to them,” Visclosky said in a release.
In addition to locations throughout Lake and Porter counties, Visclosky has scheduled forums in the areas of LaPorte County that will join his district in January.
As in previous years, local students will lead the Pledge of Allegiance and introduce Visclosky to their communities. Each student will give a brief speech on the history and economy of the 1st Congressional District to welcome Visclosky.
