YOU ARE INVITED
TO THE SECOND PEOPLE'S TOWN HALL FOR REP. PETE SESSIONS*
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th at 7:00 PM
 
AT THE PLAZA THEATER, 521 W. STATE STREET, GARLAND, TEXAS 75040
 
(*-Rep. Sessions has been invited, but has not confirmed)

Rep Pete Sessions has refused to hold Town Hall meetings recently.  When the conservatives held one in his stead, he was too busy to attend because he was away on a little $20K trip to Ireland paid for by the wealthy lobbyists Franklin Center for Global Policy Exchange well of course it is always in the best interest for our Reps to have discussions on Trans-Atlantic trade between US and Ireland which has always been a known priority.

Key issues to be addressed:
  1. Whether Rep. Sessions plans to continue using his position as House Rules Chair to stymie efforts by Sen. Ted Cruz and other conservatives to defund Obamacare--and if so, why?
     
  2. Whether Rep. Sessions plans to continue to prevent a floor debate or floor vote on Rep. Frank Wolf's proposal to investigate the murders of four Americans at Benghazi via a Select Committee--and if so, why?
     
  3. Whether Rep. Sessions plans to  continue to oppose efforts by Rep. Justin Amash (Preview)  and others to restrict the Obama Administration's blanket warrantless surveillance of ordinary Americans--and if so, why?
     
  4. Whether Rep. Sessions continues to support the idea of legalizing illegal aliens and what, if anything, he plans to do to stop the Gang of Eight Amnesty Plan or any similar amnesty / legalization plan.
     
  5. Why Rep. Sessions has found it so difficult to clear his schedule or find a venue for a public town hall meeting with his constituents.
 
BACKGROUND:
During the August 2013 recess, Rep. Pete Sessions did not hold any town hall meetings open to the general public.  Many constituents attempted to encourage Rep. Sessions to hold a public town hall, but he refused to do so.  On August 29th, a group of constituents organized their own People's Town Hall Meeting and invited Rep. Pete Sessions to participate.  The event was a success, with approximately 200 constituents showing up.  Unfortunately, Rep. Sessions elected not to participate.
 
In the wake of that meeting, constituents have continued to attempt to get real answers to their questions, but have not been successful.  Accordingly, this town hall meeting is a further attempt to get real answers.
