Rose hosts Telephone Town Hall

WASHINGTON—Last night,U.S. Rep. John Rose (TN-6) hosted a public Telephone Town Hall, connecting with more than 1,500 Tennesseans in all 19 counties that comprise the Sixth Congressional District. Rose gave an update on legislative priorities, discussed the proposed American Jobs Plan, explained actions needed to address the border crisis and answered participant questions and comments.

“It was a privilege to speak with so many folks from Middle Tennessee and answer questions about my work representing them in Congress,” Rose said. “I often get the chance to talk with people I represent as I live, work and raise a family in Tennessee, but telephone town halls are uniquely helpful by allowing constituents to participate from their own homes.”

Rose took questions covering a gamut of issues from election integrity and his support of the Save Democracy Act to the ongoing crisis at our border, the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline and impeachment.

During the call, Rose polled the audience regarding what should be the top priority of Congress this session. Of those who participated in the call and took the poll, 61% of respondents said securing our elections, 28% of respondents said defending our borders and improving the immigration system and 11% of respondents said fiscal responsibility.
