Buchanan to hold town hall in E. Manatee

EAST MANATEE – U.S. Congressman Vern Buchanan, R-Florida, announced Monday that he will hold a town hall meeting on jobs, the economy and health care in East Manatee County Saturday.

“We need to create jobs and restore economic growth,” said Buchanan. “We also need to make health care more affordable without raising taxes or expanding government control. I want to listen to the people and get their ideas and suggestions.”

It will be the second in a series of town meetings Buchanan will hold throughout the district this year to give his constituents a chance to express their views on federal issues.

The meeting will be at 11 a.m. at Braden River High School, 6545 S.R. 70 E.

If you plan to attend, call (941) 951-6643 or (941) 747-9081 or go here.

  1. My main concern is that both houses settle their partisan issues somewhere else and get this health care thing passed.
    It is the most important to middle class needing coverage AND employers needing relief from the burden of health care costs.
