Before Congressman Joe Walsh was elected to represent Illinois’ 8th District, his predecessor Melissa Bean held very few “Town Hall” meetings. In fact, when she did hold a public event THIS is how she treated her constituents:
The following is video from one of many town halls that Congressman Joe Walsh has held throughout Illinois’ 8th district since he was elected. Unlike his predecessor, Mr. Walsh welcomes ALL constituents, allows videotaping and answers all questions honestly and in person. THIS is a textbook example of how ALL representatives should treat their constituents. Joe Walsh is a breath of fresh air to Illinois’ 8th District. Hat tip to McGonagle Productions for their superb video & editing work of this town hall in Schaumburg, IL. on 4/28/11.
