Idaho’s junior lawmaker, Congressman Raul Labrador, has added a fourth town hall during the August recess, making a Friday afternoon stop in Council.
Labrador will appear from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Council Mountain Cafe,
102 Moser Ave. (The event was originally set for 3 p.m., but Labrador pushed back the time by an hour mid-morning Friday).
The sophomore 1st District lawmaker held town halls in Lewiston on Wednesday and Grangeville on Thursday. He’ll take questions at Meridian City Hall next Wednesday, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
During their five-week summer break that Congress prefers to call the “August Work Period,” the other three members of Idaho’s all-GOP delegation have yet to schedule a town hall.
Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch will meet with constituents, as will 2nd District Rep. Mike Simpson. But none of them have set any of the open-ended town halls that welcome all-comers for a Q & A.
Crapo will appear in Emmett at 5 p.m. Saturday for a discussion of efforts to win government compensation for injuries suffered by Idahoans as a result of Cold War nuclear bomb testing. The meeting is at Computators, 117 E. Main St.
On Aug. 23, Risch will appear at a luncheon hosted by the City Club of Idaho Falls, for a “Question Hour,” from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Risch will be queried by a moderator, including posing question suggested by the audience.
