Westmoreland town hall meeting Aug. 13

Congressman Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga. Third District, will hold a town hall meeting in Newnan on Tuesday.

Constituents in Georgia's Third Congressional District are invited and will have an opportunity to ask questions. At the town hall, Westmoreland will give an update on his work in Washington and will allow time for questions from the audience.

'Town halls are a great way for me to let the people of Georgia's Third Congressional District know what's going on in Washington,' said Westmoreland. 'But more importantly, town halls serve as a forum for people to come ask me questions or share their ideas and opinions with me. I encourage you to attend my town hall and look forward to seeing everyone there.'

The Newnan town hall meeting will be Tuesday at the historic Coweta County Courthouse on the Court Square in downtown Newnan from 6-7 p.m.
