I am really glad to see that Jeff Gorell (R), Brad Sherman (D), and Tony Strickland (R) continue to hold public meetings where their constituents can come and ask them questions.
Maybe they will inspire Rep. Elton Gallegly to start joining them. Gallegly did advertise an event recently but it was a fundraiser. Citizens shouldn't have to pay to ask questions of their politicians. He also appears to Tea Party or Republican Party events.
If Gallegly has time to listen to a lecture from a Tea Party leader and Barack Obama conspiracy theorist he has time to take questions from the average citizen.
I like the example set by politicians that will take questions from the public at free and scheduled events. State Senator Tony Strickland has a larger district and he had a great townhall event yesterday in Thousand Oaks. I heard from a local progressive he was very reasonable.
