WILMINGTON – On Tuesday, August 25, 2009, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) will hold a tele-town hall meeting on health care reform to hear questions, comments and concerns from Delawareans, and share his own thoughts and priorities. The call will begin at 7 pm.
As part of a month-long effort to have productive conversations about health care reform with as many constituents as he can, Sen. Carper believes that a tele-town hall is the ideal forum to reach thousands of Delawareans for a thoughtful and useful conversation.
The Senate Finance Committee, on which Sen. Carper sits, is working on its own health care reform bill. The committee has not yet finalized its version, and Sen. Carper wants to hear what Delawareans’ views are as he continues to contribute to the legislation.
To sign up for the tele-town hall, constituents may call one of Sen. Carper’s offices in Delaware or Washington, D.C., or sign up on his website, carper.senate.gov.
