Congressman Hoyer Invites You To A Health Care Town Hall Meeting
As Congress considers health insurance reform legislation that will ensure security and stability for all Americans, I would like to continue discussing with my constituents their experiences and views.
That is why I invite you to a health care town hall meeting on September 1st, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at North Point High School located at 2500 Davis Road, Waldorf, MD.  
The town hall will provide Fifth District citizens an opportunity to discuss the goals and details of health insurance reform, learn how you will benefit from improvements to the current system, and voice your views and ask questions.
