Monday there was news that Minnesota Congressman Tim Walz was trying to decide whether to hold traditional town hall meetings on health care reform, or use tele-conferencing, which would make it easier for constituents from the far-flung 1st District to participate (and also eliminate some of the disruptive mob tactics seen in other places).
But today his office announced a third option: a private meeting held today at a Rochester home. Media members were invited.
Said an email from Team Walz:
“Participants will share with the Congressman their personal experiences with the health care industry and their feeling about reform proposals. Walz is holding a series of discussions like this across southern Minnesota in his district offices, workplaces and homes to hear directly from southern Minnesotans about our health care system and how they would solve the problems and challenges with the system.”
