16th District Congressman Don Manzullo is coming to town Friday and invites constituents and others to public meetings.
Perhaps Congresswoman Melissa Bean will hold similar meetings.
She hasn’t held an open meeting in McHenry County since before last summer when she refused to have any “you all come” Town Hall meetings on the Health Care bill she supported.
Manzullo Continues His “America Speaking Out” Tour
through McHenry County on Friday
Congressman urges residents to attend meetings in Harvard, Algonquin and CL
Congressman Don Manzullo (R-Egan) is inviting McHenry County residents to join him Friday for citizens meetings in Harvard, Algonquin and Crystal Lake to help him craft a new agenda for America focused on strengthening our economy and putting Americans back to work.
The meetings, a continuation of Manzullo’s “America Speaking Out” tour across northern Illinois, will be held on Friday, July 9 from:
- 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Harvard Diggins Library, 900 E. McKinley Street, Harvard.
- 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Algonquin Village Hall, 2200 Harnish Drive, Algonquin.
- 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Algonquin Township Offices, 3702 U.S. Highway 14, Crystal Lake.
“America Speaking Out” is a new program to encourage Americans to offer ideas on a new way forward for our nation. The ideas will be used by House Republicans later this summer to craft a new agenda for America.
Manzullo will kick off the meetings with some brief remarks and then turn it over to the citizens to get their ideas on how to return America to prosperity. Other topics could include their thoughts on fiscal responsibility, American values, national security, or anything else they want to suggest or discuss.
Citizens can print off an America Speaking Out comment sheet, fill it out with their ideas, and bring it to the meeting. Manzullo will have a “suggestion box” to drop off the ideas and will post them on large white boards as the meeting ensues. Photos of the white boards will be posted on Manzullo’s webpage after the meeting.
Citizens can also visit Manzullo’s America Speaking Out webpage here where they can post their ideas or vote on other ideas that have been posted.
“Too many Americans are still out of work and are frustrated they are not seeing action from Congress to help our economy recover and thrive again,” Manzullo said. “I encourage citizens to come out to Harvard, Algonquin and Crystal Lake and ‘speak out’ with their ideas on a new way forward for our country.”
