Doggett town hall this weekend
Friday, July 14, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
Departing from a new local tradition of sarcastic congressional town halls, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett will host (and attend) a heath care town hall this weekend. The event is being held to hear from constituents about how they are, and will be, impacted by efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Joining Doggett (and constituents) will be a number of health care advocacy groups including Children’s Defense Fund, Cover Texas Now, the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities, ADAPT of Texas, Indivisible Austin, Young Invincibles and the Center for Public Policy Priorities. The town hall will take place at 2 p.m. this Sunday, July 16, in the great hall of the First United Methodist Church, which is located at 1300 Lavaca Street. A previous version of this whisper erroneously said the event would be Saturday.
