11th District Town Hall, But No Gerry Connolly

By Greg L | 28 August 2009 | Gerry Connolly, Fairfax County, Prince William County | 5 Comments

If Congressman Gerry Connolly won’t allow a public discussion about healthcare reform and the real alternatives that are available other than socializing the whole thing, then Keith Fimian will.  Once again we’re seeing that real leadership in the 11th District isn’t coming from the person pulling a taxpayer-funded paycheck to provide it, but from the challenger who is consistently proving what a far better alternative he is.  I’ve no doubt that in sharp contrast to the ridiculous circus for Organizing For America Jim Moran recently held, this will actually advance policy alternatives that would work better, cost less, and improve the situation rather than gut the health care system we now have.

Informational Health Care Forum Announcement
Tuesday, September 1st, 7 to 9 pmFairfax, VA — Responding to citizens’ desire to learn more about legislation moving through Congress, Keith Fimian, Republican candidate for Congress is organizing a panel to help answer questions on health care reform. All citizens of Northern Virginia are invited to attend who want to learn or ask questions.

Health Care Information Forum
Tuesday, September 1st, 2009
Fairfax County Government Center; Board of Supervisors Auditorium
12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22030
7-9 PM. Doors will open at 6:30PM

The forum will be a panel of experts from non-profit organizations and think tanks. They will be present to talk about proposed legislation and answer questions of interest to citizens on the health care issue only.

In announcing the forum, Keith Fimian said, “Citizens don’t want spin or shouting. They want to learn details about the health care reform being considered in Congress. This non-political forum will be an opportunity for citizens to ask questions about how health care reform will affect them. This is an informational panel to put facts in front of voters – not a sales pitch or rally. Sadly, Congress has done its usual incompetent job of incorporating the American people into its discussions. This forum is a partial remedy to their failings.”

The forum is being held at the Fairfax Government Center in order to make it accessible to as many people as possible. Supervisor Pat Herrity kindly helped arrange access to the Auditorium. Because the event is being held in the government center, no campaign materials, banners or signs are permitted. While capacity is limited, the hope is this gives citizens an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers about this important issue. The panel format is an educational forum with different views on the health care issue, not an argument about politics.

The forum panel will include:

Keith Fimian, moderator
Grace Marie Turner, Galen Institute*
Jim Capretta, Ethics and Public Policy Center*
Thomas Miller, American Enterprise Institute*

* Institutions for identification purposes only.

I’m sure this event will not have the following, that we saw from Jim Moran:

    if Mr. Fimian is going to the trouble to moderate an informational town hall meeting on Health Care, planning it in advance and giving plenty of notice to the residents of the 11th Congressional District so they can plan to attend, perhaps he should actually BE our representative to Congress? better than the current representative, who holds meetings in gated communities so as to avoid communicating with the majority of his constituents. oh wait, how could i forget about the public town hall from last week? just how many constituents were able to fit into the UPS Store in Gainseville anyway? and he did give so much notice of the meeting. what was it, something like 36 hours? way to go Ger. doesn’t seem to me like you’re terribly interested in representing me, or this district. we may just have to do something about that come November 0f 2010.

    That Wesley “I can charge you with whatever I want to charge you” Cheeks from the Reston video is a Fairfax County Public School employee:

    Wesley Cheeks is NOT a Fairfax County police officer, he is a security
    officer employed by the Fairfax County Public Schools. You may go to
    http://www.fcps.edu to contact the School’s Department of Communication
    and Community Outreach concerning this matter. They may also be reached
    by phone at 571-423-1200.

    Please accept my apologies for the impersonal reply; however I am trying
    to give the several hundred respondents the courtesy of a timely answer.

    Asst Commander, Reston District Station

    Someone should tell conservative opponents to have their own Town Hall meetings. When people see how the opponents operate, there won’t be anything the liberal people can defend against.
