Tim Huelskamp, Kansas First District Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives, will be making two stops in Marion County Wednesday, Jan. 9, in the first round of his annual town hall tour.
Huelskamp will be at St. Luke Hospital in Marion at 1:30 p.m. for a presentation given by St. Luke CEO Jeremy Armstrong, followed by a question-and-answer session with the congressman to discuss health-care issues in the district. St. Luke Hospital is located at 535 S. Freeborn.
Huelskamp will then have his formal Marion County town hall meeting from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hillsboro Civic Center, 118 E. Grand.
For the 112th Congress, Huelskamp represented 69 counties; following the decennial redistricting, Huelskamp will represent 65 of the state’s 105 counties for the 113th Congress.
“The 140 town halls I conducted during my first term provided invaluable instructions about how to best represent the 700,000 Kansans I have the privilege of serving in Washington,” Huelskamp said.
