Lucas Announces Changes to August Town Hall Meetings

Aug 06, 2010

Washington, DCDue to the sudden announcement by Speaker Pelosi that she would call the House back into session on August 9th and August 10th for votes on the state bailout bill.  Because this impromptu session of Congress will conflict with Congressman Lucas’ town hall schedule, he is forced to reschedule the Ponca City, Newkirk, Stillwater, and Cushing town hall meetings initially planned for August 10th.  The meetings will be held at the same time and place, but will now be held on August 24th.  The meetings scheduled for August 9th in Perry, Billings, Medford, and Blackwell will go on as scheduled.

“It is unfortunate that Speaker Pelosi has decided to call the House back into session, disrupting my town hall meetings.  These meetings are very important to me and I know that the people in these towns have always been avid participants in their annual town hall meeting. 

“However, the speaker and her leadership team are trying once again to spending billions upon billions of taxpayer money on yet another bailout.  I believe it is my constitutional obligation to return to Washington and ensure that the voices of the people of the Third Congressional District are heard – and those voices say no more bailouts.  I hope that the citizens of Ponca City, Newkirk, Stillwater, and Cushing will understand and will be able to attend the rescheduled meetings on August 24th,” stated Lucas.
