Miami Valley residents at constituent town hall want answers from Congressman Turner
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - A crowd packed the house at Westwood Pre-K through 8 school in Dayton for a town hall March 18.
About a hundred people went to the event that Representative Mike Turner was invited to, and wore their zip codes on their backs. FOX 45 was told people from all over the Miami Valley were there, including people from West Carrollton, Fairborn and Kettering.
Topics at the event included health care and the immigration ban, but the people there mainly wanted to talk to Representative Turner.
"We'd like to ask him that," volunteer Heath Macalpine said. "We'd like to know why he can't talk to reasonable people in his community who really want to know his point of view on some of these issues."
Turner was not able to make it to the event, and his office released the following statement:
Weeks ago, my weekend schedule at home was cancelled for intelligence committee work. This weekend, I am in Washington, D.C. participating in classified briefings in preparation for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on Monday with NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers and FBI Director James Comey concerning ongoing investigations into Russia's meddling into US elections.
