Rep. Dan Lipinski (D) from Illinois' Third Congressional District will be holding a townhall meeting this Saturday, November 14 at 10:00 a.m.  Lipinski voted YES on HR 3962, the House version of healthcare reform pushed by Nancy Pelosi.  Lipinski said, "With unemployment still rising and the economy struggling to emerge from recession, I continue to listen extremely closely to the residents of the Third District and to fight for their interests in Washington."  Based on a conversation I had with his office, Lipinski does not believe he is fighting for our interests in Washington. 

I'm a resident of the 3rd congressional district.  I called Lipinski's office to ask if he was holding a townhall meeting this Saturday because I couldn't find it on his website (neither could they, even after they Googled it).  Once they confirmed there would be a meeting, I asked Lipinski's staffer what the format of the meeting was going to be.  Their response: "There is going to be an increased police presence at the meeting."

I was interested in learning about the agenda for the meeting: would Lipinski be speaking, are they taking questions submitted in advance, will there be an opportunity to ask questions during the meeting, etc.  Their response was basically "Look, there's going to be a lot of cops there". 

Not the approach you would expect from people that believe they are doing the right thing for the people they represent in Washington.   Make sure your Representative in Washington hears your voice:
