Congressman Meadows to hold local meetings

Congressman Meadows to hold local meetings

Residents in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District will soon have a few opportunities to reach out to their congressman and his staff on the health care issue.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-Asheville, recently announced his Fourth Annual Veterans’ Solutions Seminars, which will take place Aug. 3-4 in three locations throughout the district.

Although Meadows won’t be there personally, members of his staff, along with representatives from the Charles George VA Medical Center, the N.C. Division of Veteran’s Affairs and the Veterans’ Affairs Winston-Salem Regional Benefit Office will be on hand to meet with veterans and their families and learn about benefits, disability and health care.

Meadows will, however, be in attendance at his first town hall of the summer, scheduled for Aug. 7 in Flat Rock; Meadows’ Press Secretary Ben Williamson said weeks ago that more town halls for the district are planned, but may not take place if calls for Congress to remain in session until Obamacare is repealed and/or replaced are heeded.
