Town Hall with Congressman Mike Thompson
We arranged for our Congressman Mike Thompson to meet with us at a Town Hall here in Benicia on March 18.
Co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of Benicia, Carquinez Patriotic Resistance, and Vallejo-Benicia Indivisible for Justice, the program was held at the Benicia Senior Center, 187 East L St., 6:30 to 8:30.
This was a special opportunity to hear from our Congressman and to ask him questions. He was asked to focus on five specific issues in his opening remarks, with follow-up questions from the audience on these issues, and others time permitting. The five issues were:
- Gun violence prevention
- the Green New Deal / Global warming
- Health Care
- Taxes / Economic Inequality
