Letter: Hold a town hall

To the Editor:

This past weekend, our nation’s young people were awesome, answering the tragedy of the Parkland shooting with stirring words that gave hope to us all. The kids are right – we have done nothing for decades and the problem worsens.

Taxpayers who want to voice their opinions on this issue should have that opportunity and thus we, the constituents of Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, request a town hall.

On March 27, Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s office informed me that no town hall is scheduled. Perhaps he will change his mind.

The Democratic candidate, Sara Dady, who challenges Mr. Kinzinger, believes a town hall is important. We look forward to hearing more about when and where a town hall could take place.
