Congressman Jeff Fortenberry

Representing the 1st District of Nebraska

Fort Report: Town Halls

Jul 28, 2017
Fort Report

Every August, I spend a week during the congressional work period holding discussions in multiple towns and cities across the First District of Nebraska. I am honored to serve in the House of Representatives, and I endeavor to give comprehensive updates from Washington, as well as answer questions and concerns. I learn a great deal from you. Many of the ideas expressed in town hall meetings have impacted legislation I have worked on, including veterans’ affairs, social security, health care, the budget, the environment, and other issues.
 
In his seminal Democracy in America, Alexander de Tocqueville wrote almost 200 years ago that one of the great hallmarks of our nation is our deep level of local civic engagement. Farmers, small business owners, teachers, students, railroad workers, handymen, military personnel, homemakers and many others of all races, backgrounds, and occupations have a vital stake in our Republic. In America, everyone is blessed to freely express their views in civil, respectful, and constructive dialogue with their representatives.
 
Below find a list of community meetings that I will be hosting next week. I hope to see you for an hour or so at one of these locations close to where you live.
