This Saturday, AM 560 WIND’s Cisco Cotto will moderate a special townhall meeting outside the Chicago offices of Sen. Dick Durbin where citizens can voice their opinions on the issue of health care reform. Durbin told reporters earlier this month that he doesn’t see value in holding townhall meetings. “I don't think that's a productive use of my time.”
“The people Dick Durbin represents deserve to be heard before he votes on such a radical change to our health care,” said Cisco Cotto, co-host of the John Howell and Cisco Cotto morning show on AM 560.
In response to Durbin’s resistance to listen to the voices of his constituents, AM 560 WIND will be holding a townhall meeting this Saturday, August 22, at 12 noon in Federal Plaza, 219 S. Dearborn. All citizens are invited to attend the meeting and share their views on the health care legislation under consideration in Congress. The meeting is being held adjacent to the offices of Sen. Durbin in hopes that he would be willing to attend, despite his objections.
WHAT: Townhall meeting for all citizens
WHERE: Federal Plaza, 219 S. Dearborn
