Letter to the editor: Thompson meets with residents at town halls

I hate it when folks just don’t get it right and spew out false information.

U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Howard Township, does have town meetings. In fact, he took out two hours of his time on a Saturday afternoon to talk to a group of local businessmen and women who showed up in Centre Hall.

He was open and frank and explained his policies and what he was doing in Washington. It was enlightening for me to see that he actually wants to work with the “other side.”

He also listened to the folks in attendance and, trust me, some had some very direct issues.

It seems like in an environment that politicians couldn’t agree if the sky is blue or gray, Thompson is at least willing to work with his fellow politicians and will take time on a Saturday afternoon that he could have been spending with his family.
