If your phone rings next Monday night, it might just be your Congressman.  On Monday, September 24, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (MA-09) will host his first Telephone Town Hall with residents of Norwood, Dedham, Westwood, Walpole, Medfield and Needham.


Shortly before 7:15 PM on Monday night, the phones in 28,000 local homes will ring—and everyone who answers will be given the option of participating in the forum.


At 7:15 PM, Congressman Lynch will get on the phone from his office in Washington, D.C., and the Telephone Town Hall will begin.


During the live, hour-long forum, constituents will have the chance to ask Congressman Lynch questions about his recent official visit to Afghanistan, Pakistan and a Darfur refugee camp, the War in Iraq, congressional affairs, or local issues.


Congressman Lynch said, “I have the tremendous honor of representing 19 towns and 2 cities in the United States Congress, and I make a special effort to host regular open public forums in our District and attend every Town Meeting that occurs while I’m home.  Unfortunately, that’s not possible when Congress is in session and we have votes.  So this new technology will enable me to speak directly with more of the families I represent and hear their ideas and concerns.  If this Telephone Town Hall is successful and the people of our District find it worthwhile, we will hold many, many more in the future.”


Although this first Telephone Town Hall is intended for the residents of Norwood, Dedham, Westwood, Walpole, Medfield and Needham, every resident of the Ninth Congressional District is welcome to call in.  Congressman Lynch plans to hold three additional regional Telephone Town Halls for all the other communities in the Ninth Congressional District.
