Senator Perdue does not prefer to do Town Hall meetings, as he prefers more “one on one” meetings with constituents (donors and businesses.)
So, he has “Office Hours” events that he does not attend as had his aids there on his behalf. There are some people that thought that just wasn’t acceptable and decided to show up (about 175) at his event in McDonough, GA, a town just south of the Atlanta sprawl. This place is not a Democratic stronghold by any means. This is the second “Office Hours” during the recess, the first one on Grensboro, GA, a joint event with Senator Isakson and Congressman Jody Hice. That meeting had overflowing crowds that were pretty darn vocal.
Local activists and advocate are planning more demonstrations calling for Town Halls by Senators Perdue and Isakson during the recess.
I haven’t seen Georgia get so fired up since the march in Forsyth County in 1987.
Glad to see it.
