Organizers Prepare for Large Crowd of Locals Hoping to Discuss Issues with Senator Rubio
Tampa, FL—Organizers are preparing for a large turnout of constituents eager to speak about the issues at the Constituent Town Hall for Senator Marco Rubio.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their concerns on issues including health care, national security and foreign affairs. Over 900 have confirmed their attendance and over 2,900 have expressed interest in attending, but Senator Marco Rubio still remains unconfirmed.
Multiple attempts via email, phone, social media and mail have been made to invite Senator Rubio and confirm his participation.
“We are looking forward to providing a forum for constituents to share their concerns with Senator Rubio,” says event organizer Melissa Gallagher. “Our invitation to Senator Rubio remains unanswered, but we will hold the event regardless of whether or not he attends.”
Organizers are everyday citizens who have dealt with resistance in their efforts to meet with Senator Rubio. On multiple occasions they have visited the senator’s Tampa office only to be greeted by security, police, and barricades barring them from speaking with the senator’s aides. Gallagher called his office to ask when Senator Rubio was holding his next town hall. When she learned the Senator did not have one scheduled, she decided to plan one herself and invite the senator.
The town hall will be streamed live via Facebook and several media outlets including the Tampa Bay Times will be covering the event.
