Barrow Announces 2013 Rural Listening Tour

Press Release

By:  John Barrow
Date: Dec. 20, 2012
Location: Washington, DC

On Monday, January 7, 2013, U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) will kick off his annual Rural Listening Tour of the 12th Congressional District. Congressman Barrow will visit 16 counties during the four-day tour: Columbia, Burke, Screven, Jenkins, Candler, Emanuel, Treutlen, Wheeler, Laurens, Toombs, Appling, Jeff Davis, Coffee, Tattnall, Evans, and Bulloch Counties.

"This annual tour is an opportunity to visit with folks where they live, because I don't think you should have to drive a long distance to meet with your Congressman. More importantly, this will be my first chance to meet with folks who are new to the 12th District as their representative," said Congressman Barrow. "There's a lot we can all do to help each other, but in order to do my part I need to be as accessible to the people I represent as possible. I encourage folks to come out to meet with us, and I look forward to beginning the next Congress with a tour of our district."
