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 Collegeâ€™s Hall Center for the Arts.
The meeting will follow the structure of past events Neugebauer has hosted â€” 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 Neugebauerâ€™s Big Spring office.
â€śBasically, itâ€™s a Q and A. Itâ€™s a chance for people to have their congressmanâ€™s ear,â€ť Brooks said.
Other stops on Neugebauerâ€™s visit Wednesday include:
â€˘ Dora Roberts Rehabilitation Center, where the congressman will present a U.S. flag in honor of the centerâ€™s 50th anniversary at 10:30 a.m.
â€˘ Neugebauer will address the weekly meeting of the Big Spring Lionâ€™s Club at noon in Howard Collegeâ€™s Cactus Room. The Lions are opening the meeting to the public; a catered lunch will cost $6.
â€˘ 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.
