Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, an Evanston Democrat, will host her first Twitter town hall Thursday from her Twitter account @janschakowsky. Constituents are invited to submit questions, ideas, and comments via Twitter from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Oct. 13. Schakowsky will answer questions from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. "I am always looking to use new ways to stay engaged with constituents while I represent the 9th district in Washington," Schakowsky said. "I believe it is important to use any tool available to not only listen to people's concerns but to also let them know what I'm doing as a member of Congress. I encourage people to use this forum to ask me questions directly and I look forward to an informative discussion." To participate, individuals can submit a question by including #AskJan within a tweet. Participants are encouraged to identify their hometown in their tweets.
