Got this in my inbox from someone who was at Heritage Hunt today, where Congressman Gerry Connolly will be holding a Town Hall meeting tonight:
We just got back from my mom’s place and while there watched the [Heritage Hunt] announcements on their internal cable channel. That’s the same system I have. Last time I watched it they were discouraging residents from bringing guests. The announcement has been changed to say no visitors or guests; [Heritage Hunt] residents only. Great for our democracy when our elected reps restrict access only to a select few.
So the families of Heritage Hunt residents who might want to ask their elected representative what the legislation he supports will do to their parents aren’t allowed in. That’s ridiculous. Having town hall meetings with selected constituents that are closed to the public demonstrates a level of desperation on Congressman Gerry Connolly’s part that is beyond ridiculous. If Congressman Gerry Connolly doesn’t want to hear from constituents about the legislation he supports, he should resign.
It’s part of the darned job.
If you want to protest in front of the gate at Heritage Hunt tonight, I’d suggest you get there by 6:30PM. Across the street there’s a retail/office complex which should have parking available.
