Finally, Kline Agrees To Town Hall Meeting

After six long weeks Congressman Kline finally agrees to a public Town Hall meeting!

This will be Kline's first face-to-face town meeting in several years (at least four!). I guess it would be tacky to point out that Kline's Republican colleague Rep. Jim Ramstad is hold four during the same period of time and it didn't take him six weeks of pleads, prodding and meetings from/with his constituents...Most elected officials actually do want to meet with and hear from their constituents...most... but apparently not John Kline...
