U.S. Congressional candidate Dennis Anderson will hold a public town hall forum on Tuesday, Aug. 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Harvard Diggins Library, 900 E. McKinley St.

All constituents in Harvard and neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and bring questions for the candidate.

Harvard is part of Anderson's districtwide town hall tour which will extend through October.

Topics discussed in previous town halls included the jobs outlook, campaign finance reform, immigration, infrastructure repair, debt reduction, the environment and Congressional dysfunction.

"After 12 town halls, I am convinced more than ever that voters want to know that their congressional representatives are accountable to them … not to big banks and lobbyists," states Anderson. "I intend to do a town hall that is open to the public every week throughout the rest of the campaign season. I want to hear what's on the mind of all constituents."

"While we obviously need to cut waste and improve government efficiency, we need to take care that Middle America is not shortchanged in the process. We need policies that benefit the greatest number and those with greater needs, not just those with the biggest lobbying budgets."

A resident of Gurnee, Dennis Anderson is the Democratic candidate for the United States Congress for IL-14, a seat currently held by Republican Randy Hultgren.

Upcoming town hall tour stops include Hampshire, Marengo, and Huntley. For more information and future town hall dates, visit www.dennisanderson14.com/calendar_of_events.
