Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, released a schedule today of upcoming town hall meetings in his eastern Oklahoma district. The announcement comes less than a week after a shooting rampage killed six people and injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 13 others at a Tucson event. Boren said earlier this week that he would notify law enforcement agencies in all of the counties in which he holds meetings.
Boren said in a press release today: “Town hall meetings are great opportunities for constituents in eastern Oklahoma to come together as a community and share their thoughts and concerns, as well as ask questions about legislation being considered by Congress.
“I hope these events are well attended as communication is a key part of my representation of the 25 counties in the Second Congressional District of Oklahoma. I know the dialogue expressed during town hall meetings greatly assists me. I invite you to join me.”
