Rep. Allen West’s First town hall meetings draw crowds from far and wide
Congressman Allen West (FL-22) had the first two of what he plans to be an on-going series of town hall meetings in his district, one last Thursday, January 27th, and yesterday evening, January 31st. People in the crowd drove in from as far as Vero Beach to wish him well, and hear his report on his first month in “the sad swamp off the Potomac”. I was only able to attend the second meeting at Boynton Beach’s Saint Mark’s Catholic Church/School, to a standing room only crowd in the school’s gymnasium. The meeting began with an informative 20 minute slide show on the state of our union. Representative West then opened the microphones, and specifically invited people who lived in the district who did NOT vote for him last November, to make their way to the front of the line to speak their mind first. There were a few darts, but mostly laurels from this extremely “home-town” crowd, and the Colonel did not disappoint. Although he hasn’t announce the dates or locations of his next meetings, make an effort to attend and support “our man is D.C.”
