What’s Up with Susan Collins and Town Halls?

1 min read

Town halls are essential if citizens hope to have true access to their elected officials, but Senator Susan Collins has not held one in 20 years. Mainers have been calling on her to do so ever since Trump was elected, in ever more creative ways, and they’re not giving up. Featuring voices from Midcoast Indivisible, Lincoln County Indivisible, the Women’s Collective Midcoast, Mainers for Accountable Leadership, and the 16 Counties Coalition.
