Town hall with Mike Thompson

We are lucky enough to live in Sonoma County, and Mike Thompson is our Congressman. We attended a town hall last night, and he made some great points I'd like to share.
First, the most important tool any member of congress has is constituents, they need to hear from the people who elected them.
Second, he is hopeful republicans will sometimes work with the democrats, though he hasn't seen that yet.
Third, almost all members of Congress are extremely worried about the actions they have seen from the president, and it is getting worse by the day.
Mike did not do town halls for several years because no one showed up. He is now seeing really big crowds, and engaged people. He is very pleased to be a Democrat, and to be met with applause and support.

1. He is my Representative as well

Napa.

Thanks for sharing!

I've followed his voting record, and he seems to be a pretty good Democrat.

2. We need

representatives to HEAR what we are saying, not just give us the standard reply.
