Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., announced Tuesday that he’ll hold six town hall meetings across North Dakota this month to hear from residents and answer their questions.
In a written statement, Berg said politicians can’t look to Washington for the nation’s solutions because “Washington is the problem.”
“As we work together through the historic challenges ahead, I am committed to listening to North Dakotans and making sure Washington works more like North Dakota,” he wrote. “This is North Dakota’s seat and I look forward to an open, honest and unfiltered discussion about the solutions and ideas we need to get our country back on track.”
Berg will hold town halls in Dickinson, Williston and Minot this Thursday and Friday. He also plans to hold meetings in Bismarck, Fargo and Grand Forks next week, but those meetings haven’t yet been scheduled.
The freshman congressman held his first town hall meetings in April with stops in Minot, Bismarck, Fargo and Grand Forks.
Here’s a preliminary schedule:
- Noon – Badlands Activities Center, Dickinson State University, 398 State Ave.
- 6:30 p.m. – Williston Community Library, 1302 Davidson Dr.
- Noon – Grand International Inn, 1505 N. Broadway, Minot
