Crapo to hold ‘iTownhall’ forum

Sen. Mike Crapo is inviting Idahoans to participate in an “iTownhall” meeting Wednesday evening on federal spending and expiring tax cuts. “I encourage all Idahoans to speak out during this statewide forum,” Crapo said. “This is not the time to be considering tax increases in Washington and I would appreciate hearing from Idahoans on issues of taxes and spending.” Click below for his full announcement, including how to participate.

Meanwhile, Crapo’s Democratic challenger, Tetonia businessman Tom Sullivan, has aimed sharp criticism at Crapo in the past week and a half for his votes on financial reform legislation and his campaign contributions from the financial sector. Constitution Party candidate Randy Lynn Bergquist of Weiser also is on the ballot.


For Immediate Release

CRAPO TO DISCUSS BUDGET DEFICITS, TAXES
Idahoans can join the iTownhall forum On August 4
 
Washington, DC – Many in Congress seem to have an unending appetite for spending, and Idaho Senator Mike Crapo says he’ll  make spending and expiring tax relief cornerstones of his iTownhall visit with Idahoans next month.  Crapo invites Idahoans to make arrangements to participate in his iTownhall meeting, which begins at 7:00 p.m. Mountain/6:00 p.m. Pacific on Wednesday, August 4th.
 
To sign up for the iTownhall meeting, please go to Crapo’s website, http://crapo.senate.gov and click on the iTownhall icon.  You will be directed to send an e-mail request with your contact information.  In order to participate in the iTownHall meeting, all you need is a telephone.  Participation is voluntary, and listeners are given an opportunity to ask the Senator about topics regarding federal policies or legislation.  To ensure participation, it is best to sign up two days prior to the event.

“We continue to see votes in Washington, D.C. that deepen the deficit,” Crapo said.  “I encourage all Idahoans to speak out during this statewide forum.  This is not the time to be considering tax increases in Washington and I would appreciate hearing from Idahoans on issues of taxes and spending.”

Following the call, an audio file (MP3) of the full call will be posted on the website.  A transcript will be posted at a later date.
