Byrne to hold twelve town halls in coming weeks

Friday, July 20, 2018 Congressman Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, announced that he will hold twelve town hall meetings during the August District Work Period.

Byrne’s town halls are known as the “Better Off Now” Town Hall Tour.

“Working with President Trump, we have held true to our promises to the American people,” Rep. Byrne said. “Two years later and with many parts of the agenda in place, we can safely say that Americans are better off now. Our communities are safer. The economy is booming. Our military is being rebuilt. Our ‘Better Way’ is paying off.”

“Our communities are safer because we have made supporting law enforcement a top priority,” Byrne added. “We have passed historic legislation to address the opioid crisis, which is having a horrible impact on communities in Alabama and throughout the country. In addition to better policy, we have invested $4 billion in grants and programs to help combat the opioid crisis.”

“No one can deny that the American economy is booming,” Byrne stated. “Just consider these numbers: 90 percent of Americans are seeing larger paychecks under our tax reform bill. 3.7 million jobs have been created since November 2016. There are 6.6 million job openings in the United States as of May 2018, meaning more jobs than job seekers. And, $4.1 billion has been saved in agency regulatory costs by rolling back burdensome government regulations.”

Congressman Byrne will hold public town halls in each of the counties that make up Alabama’s First Congressional District. Byrne will explain how he believes that the American people are better off now thanks to a booming economy, stronger military, and safer communities.

Byrne ranks among the top of all Members of Congress for the number of town hall meetings held. Since assuming office in late 2013, Byrne has held over 100 town hall meetings, including meetings over the phone and through Facebook.
