Foxx To Host Telephone Town Hall

The following is from a press release from NC Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Thursday, August 20 Congresswoman Virginia Foxx will host a district-wide telephone town hall on the topic of healthcare reform for Fifth District constituents. Constituents can call into the town hall meeting by dialing 1-877-850-4133 at 6:30 pm and entering the password FOXX (3699).

"We need sensible healthcare reform that is patient centered, not government-centered or insurance company-centered,” Foxx said. “In the midst of the national debate over healthcare reform many constituents want to know what their government is up to with healthcare.

“North Carolina taxpayers are rightly demanding that Washington slow down the process and listen to their concerns,” Foxx said. “So I am looking forward to hearing constituents’ thoughts about the healthcare reform bills moving through Congress.”

Constituents will be connected to a live conference call with Rep. Foxx and other constituents in the Fifth District when they call 1-877-850-4133 on August 20 at 6:30 pm. All participants will need to enter a password for the call: the password is F-O-X-X (3699). After joining the call, participants will be able to ask Rep. Foxx questions about the healthcare reform or any other issues on their mind.

“Please join me on this telephone town hall,” Foxx said. “This will be a great opportunity for constituents to let their voice be heard in the important healthcare debate in Congress no matter where they live in the Fifth District."

This telephone town hall is open to constituents in North Carolina’s Fifth District.
