Press release from Rep. Patrick McHenry:

This August, I will be holding my annual town hall meetings here in the Tenth District. During the town hall meetings, I will give an update on recent legislative activity in the U.S. Congress and what to expect in the coming months. I also look forward to taking questions directly from Tenth District residents on the issues that are important to you and your communities. Additionally, my staff will be available at the town hall meetings to meet privately with constituents who have issues with federal agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, or the Internal Revenue Service.
