”U.S. Rep. Ed Case Begins New Year with more Talk Story Town Meetings”
Congressman Ed Case (Hawaii, Second District) will return to Hawaii Island and Maui to host nine more Talk Story town meetings starting Jan. 16 to give citizens of his district a wrap-up of legislative action in Congress during the past year and a look ahead to the issues lawmakers will be facing in the 2004 session starting January 20th.
“My 42 Talk Story meetings in 2003 reached residents of the Second Congressional District on every island and provided great feedback that has helped shape my legislative agenda and encouraged everyone to take advantage of my office’s open-door policy,” said Case. “The feedback I’ve received was also evident in the volume of communications and meetings my Honolulu and Washington offices handled during the past year. This involved responding to more than 30,000 e-mails and letters from Hawaii, which is more than three times the volume Congressional offices send out over an average year. In addition, my offices welcomed more than 2,500 people for meetings and visits.
“I’m looking forward to starting the New Year with another round of Talk Story town meetings on Hawaii Island and Maui, after completing my first full year in the U.S. House. I’ll listen to the concerns of residents and discuss what’s going on in Congress. With the 2004 session set to begin on January 20th, it’s time to check back in with my communities again.”
Here is Case’s schedule of his next series of Talk Story meetings:
