Participants needed for town hall meeting

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: September 12, 2012

Participants are still needed for a town hall meeting Saturday in Strongsville.

The event is part of a national bus tour headlined by former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker that is aimed at highlighting the need to address the federal debt and other economic issues.

Organizers are trying to attract a demographically and politically representative 300 voters from the 16th Congressional District and the surrounding area. They will listen to a panel discussion on financial issues facing the country, be given potential solutions and use hand-held devices to vote on which steps they think should be taken.

Walker chose the 16th District because most pundits call the Congressional race a toss up and millions of dollars are expected to be spent by both sides. U.S. Reps. Jim Renacci, R-Wadsworth, and Betty Sutton, D-Copley, are battling for the seat, thrown into the same district by a redrawing of the boundaries.

The town hall meeting will be from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Organizers are only releasing the location to those chosen to participate.

Voters who are interested can apply online or call 330-836-9507.
