In The News
Mar 8, 2017

Congressman Darrell Issa invites residents of California’s 49th District to attend in-person town hall meetings to discuss health care reform, local legislative priorities and other important issues. They're an opportunity to interact directly with your Member of Congress, share input, and ask questions of critical priority to San Diego and Orange Counties.

The events will be held on Saturday, March 11 at the Junior Seau Recreation Center in Oceanside.

To accommodate as many constituents as possible, the events will be held in two separate sessions. The first will be held at 8:30AM and the second at 10:00AM.

In order to accommodate demand, interested attendees are asked to register in advance to reserve a seat. Reservations will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Invitees are invited to register for just one of the two sessions to give as many as possible the opportunity to participate.

Check-in will begin no more than 30 minutes prior to the event's start time.

Only a small number of spots will be available at the door to accommodate those with disabilities and special needs, so those interested in attending are highly suggested to register in advance to reserve space.

Congressman Issa looks forward to hearing your concerns, answering your questions and taking the time to speak with all of you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I bring with me to the event?

To enable a productive dialogue, attendees may not bring signs, speakers, megaphones, air horns or other items that would impede other attendees ability to listen to, have questions answered or otherwise participate in the event. Video cameras are prohibited unless you are a credentialed member of the press who has RSVPed in advance to our communications team. 

What can I expect during the event?

Each session will last roughly 45 minutes to an hour. Check-in will begin 30 minutes in advance. Attendees are asked to bring printed or digital copies of their reservation to ensure admittance. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask Congressman Issa questions, and he will have the opportunity to hear directly from the community in a large venue format. If you are unable to be seated, we will also do our best to take questions from our Facebook and Twitter audiences if time allows. The event will also be livestreamed online.
