FAIRVIEW, Tenn. (WKRN) – Congressman Marsha Blackburn hosted a town hall meeting in Fairview Tuesday afternoon.
The event was at maximum capacity and seating was capped at 100, requiring reservations.
It began at 3:30 p.m. with around 150 demonstrators outside the Fairview City Hall.
“We really want a chance just to sit down and talk with her. We’re not against her. We’re not fighting her. We really just want the opportunity to sit down eye to eye, talk with her, tell her what we’re concerned about, see if there’s any possibility that we can find common ground,” said Rebecca Purington.
The group outside held an “alternative” town hall to discuss all kinds of pressing issues going on today, including the Affordable Care Act, Russia, and immigration.
And inside, Blackburn gave a legislative update on a few key issues and also took questions from the crowd.
