Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) to host "America Speaking Out" town halls

Republicans in the U.S. Congress are reaching out to constituents during the "town hall" season that is traditionally held during its summer break. Billed as "America Speaking Out," congressmen are reaching out into their districts to initiate a "new national dialogue that aims to bring the halls of Congress into American homes."

The Shenandoah Valley's Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) will be traveling the mostly-rural 6th District, something he is very familiar with as he plans to set out on his latest tour to listen to voters' concerns. Visiting urban areas that include Roanoke and Lynchburg as well as making stops in the Shenandoah Valley and Hot Springs in the Alleghany Mountains, he will collect information from constituents as they share their ideas for a national policy agenda. Many have concerns that center on limited accountable government, the free enterprise system, lower taxes and responsible spending, and all will be compiled to bring about a new American agenda.

“I feel it is important to keep an open line of communication so I can best serve the interests of the 6th Congressional District,” said Congressman Goodlatte. “If we in Congress work hand in hand with the American people, we can change the way business is done in Washington.”

Under categories that include "American Prosperity," "Fiscal Accountability," "American Values," "National Security," and "Open Mic," the America Speaking Out website offers an opportunity for voters of all political persuasions to speak up and be heard.
