Congress is off for a couple of weeks and a number of its members (mostly Democrats) have scheduled town hall meetings with their constituents. (Senator Manchin is holding one as I write this in Parkersburg.)
I again checked to see if Representative McKinley had scheduled a meeting with the voters of WV's First Congressional District and again I found nothing. If you go to his congressional website, it has a number of visuals at the top of the page. All contain old news (four are from 2016 and one is from 2015). His "Press release" tab mentions two recent events: his co-sponsorship of a generic drug bill and his support for Trump's military action. His "In the news" tab discusses the first Republican health care proposal followed by a somewhat ambiguous statement of where he stood on the bill which never came to a vote. In a Google-search of what McKinley has been doing recently, I found the co-sponsorship of the generic drug bill and the statement supporting President Trump's Syrian action. Note that neither of these requires his actual physical presence. Checking the local papers where he is a favorite, I found his last picture and article was on March 7 and there's not even been a picture of him with local veterans or a report of his having gone shopping with his family since then.
So where is the congressman and when is he going to hold a town hall for his constituents?
In the course of putting this post together, I found an excellent online resource: town hall project is an interactive site that allows you to easily find your nearest town hall meeting.
Congressman McKinley has been found. He tweeted this earlier today:
Hey, Congressman. Not all of your constituents are veterans and some of them would like to talk to you.
