Congressman Mike Rogers visited Randolph County today holding a town hall-style public meeting with constituents at The Missing Link in Roanoke.
During his visit, Rogers talked about the state of our economy, specifically in rural communities like Roanoke and answered questions from constituents ranging from defending our Second Amendment rights, to the IRS scandal, to Obamacare, to immigration, to spending and tax reform.
Rogers says he regularly holds these town hall-style events to give folks across the Third District the opportunity to discuss issues important to them in a public setting.
"I truly enjoy hosting these public meetings so I can hear first-hand what is on the minds of constituents across East Alabama. So many people are concerned with what's going on in Washington these days, and these local discussions help me take those concerns back to Congress to continue fighting for East Alabama's interests," Rogers said.
While in Randolph County, Rogers also visited the new health care facility in Wedowee, Tanner East Alabama Clinic, and toured Jeld-Wen in Roanoke.
"Our rural economies are vitally important to our nation, and we must continue to find ways to help attract and create new good paying jobs," he said. "I deeply appreciate the chance to visit these outstanding facilities."
