Barney Frank Town Hall, 9/12, Wellesley

Representative Barney Frank, who has been a strong supporter of single payer reform and an active member of the Progressive Caucus in Congress, is holding a second town hall meeting in Wellesley this Saturday, September 12, 2PM at Mass Bay Community College. If you are from Rep Frank’s district or know someone who is, please attend this town hall meeting and thank the Representative for continuing to support single payer reform, and advancing the movement to make health care a right this Congressional session. Also, please ask Rep Frank if he will support the Weiner amendment, which would replace the current bill in the House with the single payer bill, and if he will support the Kucinich amendment, which would allow states like Massachusetts to experiment with single payer reform and receive necessary federal waivers.


Frank Announces Open Meeting with Constituents
Plans to Discuss Health Care and Other Issues

Newton, MA – Congressman Barney Frank today announced that he will host an open meeting with constituents on Saturday, September 12th, at Mass Bay Community College in Wellesley.

“I have not traditionally held such forums,” said Congressman Frank, “because I hear from a more representative cross-section of my constituents when I am invited to attend meetings of local organizations or when I meet one-on-one with constituents.  But because of the unusual nature of the healthcare debate, I am planning this special forum in order to discuss this and other pressing national issues.”

“I recently spoke at a meeting of the Democratic Town Committee of Dartmouth.  That meeting was widely attended, and it became an informal forum on healthcare.  I would like to offer residents of the northern part of my Congressional district an opportunity to discuss this issue, and so I am holding the upcoming meeting in Wellesley.”

WHAT:          Open Forum
WHEN:          Saturday, September 12th
TIME:            2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
TOPIC:          Health care, financial reform and other issues
WHERE:         Mass Bay Community College
ADDRESS:     50 Oakland Street, Wellesley Hills
