Murray, Cantwell and Baird Schedule Secret Town Hall! UPDATED!

Update: So we are getting word that the town hall in Longview is canceled tomorrow - but then on the 11:00 p.m. news tonight on KIRO, they announced that the meeting was still on... I'm sorry I can't confirm this either way. If I hear anything I will let everyone know asap.

Check this out:
Standing up for reform in Longview, WA with Sen. Murray, Sen. Cantwell, And Rep. Baird (Health Care Public Event)
Our representatives are under attack by Washington insiders, insurance companies, and well-financed special interests who don't go a day without spreading lies and stirring up fear. We need to show that we're sick and tired of it, and that we're ready for real change, this year.

Please come to the event, and make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform.

Please try to arrive by noon; space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those slick little you know whats!! They only advertised this through Organizing for America. Beyond that, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell's offices both LIED to all of us when they said they were NOT holding any town halls this month. The website is showing 650 RSVP's for this event. I hope we are some of them.

Event details:
Where: Cowlitz County Expo Center
1900 7th Ave
Longview, WA 98632

When: Thursday, August 13th
Time: They are arriving at noon so we need arrive even earlier! Maybe around 11:00 a.m. The town hall starts at 2:00 p.m.

Do not let them have a town hall in secret, only to show clips of this later, claiming that there is no opposition to this bill.


  1. Agh... this is so frustrating! They never have these in the evenings!

  2. I am represented by cowards. Reichert holds a phone tele-conference because he is afraid to face his angry constituents regarding Cap and Tax. Murray continues to send me emails asking for healthcare sob stories to justify her pre-determined position yet won't ask what I want in healthcare reform. And Cantwell? Does she answer or respond to any calls or emails since she bought her Senate seat?

    How hard could it be to hold a town hall meeting and do nothing but listen??? Don't sell your position. Just LISTEN! Listening would earn more trust than this kind of stealth activity set up as a photo op for the liberal Washington press.

  3. Ah...the web site now says the event is no longer scheuled to take place. Think they are trying to pull another fast one?

  4. According to the website, the event's been cancelled. Don't know if that's true either, but thought people should know. Wouldn't be surprising if they cancelled out of cowardice once the word got out.

  5. One of the guys on said that Cowlitz County said that one and a half days is not enough to plan security. Naturally, speculation as to the real reason--you know, like too many right-wing veterans, bitterly clinging to their religion and guns, were going to show up...

    Said he would go anyway, since it's close to work and he can take the time.
