WKSR: Corker Conducts Town Hall Meeting Today

Aug 23, 2007

U.S. Senator Bob Corker will hold a town hall meeting with citizens of Giles County today at 2pm in Pulaski. The event will be held at Pulaski Electric System and is open to the public.

 

During the Senate’s August recess, Corker is visiting 38 counties across the state to listen to his constituents concerns and provide an update on his work in Tennessee and Washington on their behalf.

 

On November 7, 2006, Bob Corker was elected to serve the people of Tennessee in the United States Senate. He serves on the Senate Foreign Relations, Energy, Small Business, and Aging Committees, and in July was also appointed to serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

 

Corker returned late Tuesday from a four-day trip to Iraq, Kuwait and Germany, which included meetings with top American and Iraqi leaders and visits in and around Baghdad, including the Green Zone and outside the Green Zone at Camp Victory and the U.S. Combat Outpost.

 

The Senator also had lunch with a number of Tennessee soldiers, marines and airmen in the Green Zone and later flew by helicopter outside the Green Zone to the U.S. Combat Outpost, where they were able to see a street-level view of life for Iraqi citizens. They had dinner at the Outpost with 70 U.S. soldiers and four Iraqi sheiks who are working with the U.S. military to help secure their villages.
