John Barrow at 2010 campaign event
U.S. Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga., is hosting a town hall meeting from 8 to 9 a.m. Monday at Lou Ann's Biscuits and Burgers, 1010 Telfair St., Dublin.
Barrow plans to meet with Laurens County residents of the 12th District in the session called "Congress on the Corner" to hear their thoughts regarding the government shutdown, according to a news release from his office.
Members of Barrow's staff will also be on hand to help with issues such as Social Security and Veterans Affairs issues.
"This unnecessary government shutdown has left many folks in our district with questions and concerns, and I want to be available to hear them," Barrow stated in the news release. "Too many folks are staying inside the Washington bubble, rather than listening to the folks who sent us here, and I refuse to get caught up in the partisanship that's overcome Washington."
