Congressman Jerry Moran will be in Peabody Jan. 17 as part of his seventh annual “Big First Listening Tour.” The stop will be his only one on in Marion County.
Each year since 1996 when he was first elected to Congress, Moran has traveled to all counties in the First District of Kansas, holding a town-hall meeting in each with area residents. The tour gives people the opportunity to ask questions and give input concerning issues at the federal level.
“With so many challenges in Washington, D.C., and such difficult times in Kansas, common sense advice from the people of Kansas is more important than ever,” Moran said. “It is essential to my job in Congress that I hear the thoughts and concerns of the people I represent.”
During the next few months, Moran will travel more than 5,000 miles and meet with thousands of Kansans in courthouses, cafes and city halls while visiting all 69 counties in the First District, including the newly added counties of Geary, Greenwood and Nemaha.
“It’s an honor for me to continue the tradition of the tour, and I look forward to meeting with you when I am in your county,” Moran said.
His visit to Peabody will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the public library, 218 N. Walnut.
