Here is the list of North Carolina’s US House of Representatives showing the ten out of thirteen “representatives” who did not hold a town hall during the summer recess. Most disappointing of all was Renee Ellmers’ last minute cancellation to answer questions at a Moccasin Creek Minutemen meeting.
|Name||Party Affiliation||Town Hall Meeting|

After what can only be described as one of the most incompetent sessions of Congress, it is no surprise that most of our representatives were too ashamed to appear in public to address their constituents. Sixty percent of all US House representatives did not hold a town hall after their debt ceiling vote. Our state average was 76.9% which is 28% higher than the national average.
Although this dubious honor is lost on our politicians, we will hold them accountable. There have been many low points for our nation lately but we must take notice when our elected officials are hiding from instead of defending their record.
