Echoing long running complaints from voters in the Illinois Congressional 6th District about Peter Roskams dogged refusal to attend open meetings with his constituents, the Chicago Sun-Time Editorial Board chimed in on April 25th with an editorial entitled “Come out, come out, wherever you are, Peter Roskam”.
The Editorial ripped the congressman from the Illinois 6th Congressional District for refusing to meet in open forums with the residents of his district.
As the Editorial correctly points out “Roskam misses the point. Or maybe he lacks courage. A town hall meeting may not result in a “productive” discussion of public policy, but it sends a message that he is listening to his constituents. The same way he listens to lobbyists with money.”
