Rep. Eric Paulsen / U.S. House of Representatives
(KMSP) - U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen of Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District will host three in-person town hall meetings Wednesday in Hamel, Chanhassen and Brooklyn Park.
Last year, the pressure to host town halls was mounting as activists angry at the Trump Administration wanted their voices to be heard. Paulsen, among other republicans, chose not to hold the meetings.
In some cases, crowds have shouted the representatives off the stage, and in others, like Rep. Tom Emmer’s, a civil conversation was had.
The first meeting will take place at 10 a.m. at the Hamel Community Center.
The second meeting will take place at 1:30 p.m. at the Chanhassen American Legion.
The third meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Brooklyn Park Community Action Center.
