NEWPORT – Sen. Bernie Sanders will hold a town meeting in Newport on Sunday, September 5.
The event will take place at Gardner Memorial Park at noon, and will feature food and live music.
Sanders said it is a chance for the community to come together and hear about the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill and how it will make major investments in working families in Vermont and across the country.
“If passed, this bill will be the most consequential piece of legislation for working people, the elderly, the children, the sick, and the poor since FDR and the New Deal of the 1930s,” said Sen. Sanders. “I look forward to speaking directly with Vermonters about the details of this bill and hearing their thoughts.”
Vermonters wishing to attend the event are asked to RSVP on Senator Sanders’ website.
Those who do not have access to the internet may call 802-598-0606 and leave the following information: first and last name, mailing address, phone number, and the event location they are attending.
