Leonard Lance Town Hall Meeting Nov. 9th in Clark, NJ

Congressman Leonard Lance (R-NJ-7) will hold a town hall meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 9, in Clark.

The meeting will take placed from 5-7 p.m. at the Clark Municipal Court Building,  315 Westfield Avenue. All residents of New Jersey's Seventh Congressional District are invited to attend.

Since some of NJPA's members live in District 7, we thought we'd pass this announcement along. We only learned of it late last night, so we apologize for the short notice. Issues like "Moving the Money from War to Peace" or ending the war in Afghanistanare very appropriate to raise.

There are some questions below for Town Hall participants as well as some tracking tips to ensure that good video or still photos for the media are obtained. There  is also reference to a document of tips called Making Your Voice Heard at a Town Hall. iPhone cameras do just fine for both, so no need to get very high tech with things like this. It's just imperative to hold our elected officials accountable, so any help you can provide is just great.

Basically, the ideal situation would include a good group of folks (say 10) essentially able to get their questions out there with one person deemed the "tracker" who is videotaping and/or getting photos (for example, Clark Muni Courtroom surrounded by Don't Touch My Medicare signs or a crowd of folks outside the building with signs, etc.).

Any videotape we get of Rep. Lance is always the best.
