U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, whose Seventh Congressional District includes Perry County and the rest of the Black Belt, will host a town hall meeting in Marion today, Thursday, April 21, beginning at 1:15 p.m.
The meeting, part of Sewell’s “Congress in Your Community” tour, will be held on the campus of Marion Military Institute, in the chapel. It will begin at 1:15 p.m. with a press availability, followed by the town hall meeting at 12:00 noon.
Sewell’s team had initially announced the event for 1:30 p.m., but announced on Wednesday evening that the event would instead start an hour and a half earlier.
Earlier in the week, Sewell made stops in other Black Belt counties her district includes, with visits to Greene County and Sumter County on Tuesday and Pickens County on Wednesday. She visited Hale County in March, when she held a town hall at the Hale County College and Career Center in Greensboro.
Each year, Sewell hosts a series of town hall meetings in each of the 14 counties that make up her district to give constituents an opportunity to share their views and concerns and hear updates on the latest in Congress.
Congresswoman Sewell will update constituents on American Rescue Plan spending, the federal funding coming to Alabama from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, voting rights, the situation in Ukraine, and Congress’ ongoing efforts to battle COVID-19. Constituents will have the opportunity to get their questions answered directly by the Congresswoman.
