Neugebauer to host town hall

Area residents will have the opportunity to sound off to their congressional representative Wednesday afternoon.
U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Lubbock) will participate in a variety of activities Wednesday, capped by a town hall meeting set for 2:30 p.m. at Howard College’s Hall Center for the Arts.
The meeting will follow the structure of past events Neugebauer has hosted — the congressman will give a brief legislative update, then open the floor for questions from the public.
Past town hall meetings have been dominated by discussions about hot-button topics such as taxes or the budget deficit, but questions will not be limited to issues dominating the headlines, said Lisa Brooks, manager of Neugebauer’s Big Spring office.
“Basically, it’s a Q and A. It’s a chance for people to have their congressman’s ear,” Brooks said.
Other stops on Neugebauer’s visit Wednesday include:
• Dora Roberts Rehabilitation Center, where the congressman will present a U.S. flag in honor of the center’s 50th anniversary at 10:30 a.m.
• Neugebauer will address the weekly meeting of the Big Spring Lion’s Club at noon in Howard College’s Cactus Room. The Lions are opening the meeting to the public; a catered lunch will cost $6.
• At 1:15 p.m., the congressman will meet with Big Spring Independent School District officials and tour Goliad Elementary, one of four new campuses being constructed within the district.
For more information on Naugebauer’s visit, contact Brooks at 264-0722.
