(Washington – August 16, 2012) Representative Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) held a District Discussion town hall meeting in Londonderry on Thursday afternoon at the Londonderry Town Offices. Questions covered such topics as Social Security and Medicare, defense spending and the federal budget.
District Discussions are one-hour meetings where Congressman Guinta is available to talk one-on-one with any constituent about any topic. They are part of ongoing efforts to stay connected to Granite Staters. His other outreach efforts have included traditional Town Hall meetings, a weekly e-mail newsletter, open office hour meetings for constituents held by staffers (which have been held in every town across the First Congressional District), a bi-monthly newspaper column, an active presence on Facebook and other social media outlets and frequent public appearances.
“The House of Representatives is nicknamed The People’s House,” Guinta said. “You have to stay in touch with people to effectively represent them on Capitol Hill. District Discussion meetings provide an ideal opportunity for me to listen to Granite Staters’ thoughts, concerns, ideas and questions, and for them to hear directly from me about what I’m doing in Washington.”
