Rep. Hodes Phones It In

As Congress returns from its month long recess and again takes up the health care debate, Congressman Paul Hodes plans to wrap up his nontraditional health care forum series through a tele-town hall meeting tonight.

Hodes has been roundly criticized over the last few weeks for avoiding face-to-face meetings with his constituents.

Tonight’s call is scheduled to start at 6:50 p.m. Those interested should dial 877-269-7289 and enter 14631# as an access code.

Although the Congressman’s office claims callers will be given the opportunity to ask questions, high call volume at previous tele-town halls have resulted in only a small percentage of pre-screened constituent questions being answered.
