4. Or (some) Illinois lawmakers don't hold town halls

As I said, when I googled for Davis's town halls, I found only 2 on his web site, both from spring 2015. When I googled Durbin I found less (though one can arrange meetings with him, certainly). Perhaps the issue is that these legislators face little to no opposition here, either ideologically or electorally. Danny Davis is pretty much Congressman for Life. Durbin wins by large margins, though probably faces opposition downstate.

Duckworth has just begun, so I don't expect her to have any town meetings yet.



The better strategy would be to urge lawmakers to hold town halls (rather than just recording ones that exist).
