Joint Town Hall Meetings Scheduled

U.S. Representatives Jason Altmire and Tim Murphy are set to hold two joint town hall meetings: one tonight, and one tomorrow night. The Allegheny County Congressmen are members of different parties (Altmire is a Democrat, Murphy a Republican), but the two share similar views. Both say that gas prices are the number one issue in their respective districts and both are concerned about veterans' affairs. Murphy says that the town hall meetings represent the type of cooperation between parties that must occur for the U.S. to keep moving forward.

Tonight's meeting will be held at the Monroeville Town Hall starting at 7:00 p.m., and tomorrow's meeting will be held at Penn State-Beaver also starting at 7:00 p.m.
