FARGO – Republican U.S. House candidate Kevin Cramer plans to hold several town hall meetings during the next couple weeks as part of a campaign initiative to engage with prospective voters.
“Without the involvement of concerned citizens, Washington will never change,” Cramer said in a statement. “The town hall meeting was foundational in building our young nation, and it remains just as important today.”
“It is representative democracy at its most basic, grassroots level – sharing ideas and concerns with one another and then going out to vote,” he added.
Here’s the schedule of Cramer’s first town hall stops:
- VALLEY CITY – 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 28 at Vicky’s Viking Room, 253 Central Ave. N.
- GRAFTON – 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Choice Financial Community Room, 38 West 6th St.
- ST. THOMAS – Noon Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Fire Hall on Main Street.
- CAVALIER – 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4 at Thompson’s Café on Main Street.
Cramer is vying against five other Republicans for the party’s endorsement this year. He announced last week that he plans to forgo the spring nominating convention and will, instead, seek voters’ support directly through the June primary.
