Rep. Murphy Holds Healthcare Forums


Since being elected Congressman for the 5th District, Chris Murphy has held weekend forums at Stop & Shops across the district to meet with constituents about many legislative matters. In the recent debate over healthcare, Murphy has planned a number of town hall forums to allow citizens to air thier opinions on the healthcare bills before Congress. Tuesday he brought donuts and coffee to Waterbury’s Library Park. Wednesday he visited the Litchfield Hills. This morning he’ll be in Danbury. Murphy will return to Washington after Labor Day to begin debate on the bills.

Wednesday night an overflow crowd in the Shepaug Regional High School auditorium brought a variety of opinion on HB 7200 and two other versions of the bill which may change healthcare in America for the future. Murphy alternated in taking questions and giving brief answers to supporters and opponents in a forum which lasted almost two and a half hours. (more to recap this town hall meeting to follow)

The following schedule is a list of healthcare forums for the rest of the week. He returns to the Wolcott area with a visit to Library Park on Friday morning:
