Amid rising tensions at local town halls, three local representatives - one Democrat and two Republicans - are coming home to San Diego to speak with their constituents.
U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R- 49th District), U.S. Rep. Susan Davis (D- 53rd District) and U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R - 50th District) will all hold separate town hall events this Saturday to speak with their constituents.
The Representatives are expected to discuss health care reform, local legislative priorities and other issues important to constituents. San Diegans will also have opportunities to speak directly with their Representatives to ask questions and share input.
Many local lawmakers have faced tensions in the past when coming home to speak with constituents. Recently, Issa has faced protesters outside his office and outside his town hall upset with the GOP's plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. During a joint town hall, Davis and U.S. Rep. Scott Peters (D - 52nd District) faced angry residents, demanding more outrage from their lawmakers amid happenings in our nation's capitol under the new President and GOP-led Congress.
This Saturday, town hall events for Davis, Issa and Hunter are either completely booked or are expected to fill up quickly.
Hunter's town hall will start at 10 a.m. and go for two hours at Mainstage Ramona, located at 626 Main St. The event is expected to fill up, and those wishing to attend are asked to arrive early. For more information, click here.
