Congressman Capuano Hosts Telephone Community Meetings

October 21, 2011

On Wednesday, November 2nd from 6:55–7:55 PM and on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00–8:00 PM, I am hosting telephone community meetings. Anyone interested in participating may dial 1-877-229-8493 and use pin 13034 at the scheduled time to join the call. If youíd like to ask me a question, just press *3 after joining the meeting.

There are so many important issues facing our country, from the economy and jobs to federal spending priorities. I am very interested in hearing what you think about the Super Committee, charged with putting forth a plan to reduce the federal deficit. That plan must be submitted to Congress by November 23rd and voted up or down by December 23rd. The impact of their work will be felt by all of us, whether the Super Committee can come to an agreement or not. If they canít reach agreement, automatic across-the-board cuts will go into effect. Either way, pursuant to a plan or across-the-board, America will soon feel the impacts of $1.5 Trillion in budget reductions.

If you have some time on either day, I hope you can call in. We plan to schedule some additional meetings soon and will be posting the audio recording of meetings on our website in case these November dates donít work for you.

Also, we are in the process of scheduling some community meetings in the 8th district. As those dates and locations are finalized, I will get them to you.
