Congressman Bart Gordon invites constituents to a pair of telephone town halls August 21


PhoneMURFREESBORO-U.S. Representative Bart Gordon has scheduled two additional telephone town hall events on August 21 for residents of Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District.  

The telephone-based public forums will allow residents to communicate directly with Representative Gordon, enabling them to share their concerns and ask questions about health care, veterans’ issues, the economy and other important issues facing Tennessee and the country.

“I have scheduled these events because I want to hear from as many of my constituents as possible, which will allow me to better represent Middle Tennessee,” said Gordon.

On Friday, August 21, Gordon will hold two separate telephone town hall events – one at 11:00 a.m. central time (CDT) and another at 5:30 p.m. CDT.  Telephone town halls do not require participants to travel – they only require a telephone.

“There are a number of challenges facing our country right now, and there are no quick fixes,” explained Gordon.  “I hope as many folks as possible will sign up for one of the telephone public forums.”

Residents of the Sixth District interested in participating in the telephone town hall events on August 21 can sign up by visiting or by calling Congressman Gordon’s Murfreesboro office at 615-896-1986. 

Registered participants will receive a phone call on August 21 shortly before the start of the telephone town hall for which they signed up.  Participation is toll free and easy – upon receiving the invitation phone call on August 21, registered participants will hear simple instructions about how to listen, ask questions, and leave messages.

“These call-ins are just part of my efforts to understand the concerns of the more than 700,000 constituents across the 15 counties I represent in the Sixth District,” added Gordon.

Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District includes the following counties: Bedford, Cannon, Clay, DeKalb, Jackson, Macon, Marshall, Overton, Putnam, Robertson, Rutherford, Smith, Sumner, Trousdale, and part of Wilson.
