Tisei town hall

Tisei’s campaign has announced that he will host a series of town hall discussions across the district from now until the November election.

Last Saturday, the Wakefield Republican hosted hourlong conversations with voters in North Andover and Amesbury, covering a variety of issues from deficit reduction and improving the economic climate to reforming America’s health care system, according to the campaign.

Tisei also hosted a telephone town hall discussion with about 12,000 seniors from across the district about Medicare, the campaign said.

Tisei’s campaign said it will try to host in-person town halls in as many towns and cities in the district as possible. Danvers will play host to the next meeting this Saturday, followed by another in Burlington. The times and locations have yet to be announced.
