Flake Has Two Weeks To Make Good On His Promise
The Senate won’t meet for two weeks, so Jeff Flake has plenty of time to fulfill his promise to hold a town hall meeting.
It’s been a busy 90 days in Washington, and from Republican plans to strip 420,000 Arizonans of their health care to his fight to allow internet service providers to sell consumer’s internet history for their own profit, Arizonans’ questions are piling up for Senator Jeff Flake.
So, Senator, where’s the town hall you promised?
Flake has failed to announce a single town hall since making his promise three weeks ago. Back then, he said “he wasn’t avoiding them” and blamed his busy schedule — even though the Senate has only been in session 52 days this year. He hasn’t held a single public event in Arizona in months, denying his constituents the opportunity to share their views on how he’s doing his job.
American Bridge spokesman Joshua Karp made the following statement:
“Jeff Flake promised Arizonans a town hall so they could speak directly to him, but as the Senate recess begins, Flake has failed to follow through. Arizonans are deeply troubled by Flake’s 100% support for Trump’s irresponsible agenda, his support for Trumpcare, and his invasion of his constituents internet privacy. Senator, you have two weeks and no excuses left. After three months of ducking your voters, it’s time to face the music.”
