CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER TO HOLD TOWN HALL Current rating: 0
25 Jan 2006
(Kansas City, Mo.) Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II, will hold a community Town Hall on Thursday, January 26, 2006 at the Mohart Multipurpose Center, 3200 Wayne, Kansas City, Missouri 64109.
The Town Hall will focus on the important issue of the President’s use of domestic phone tapping. The forum will feature noted local Constitutional scholars from the metropolitan area, including University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas. The panel will provide a balanced discussion examining both sides of this controversial issue.

“Keeping America safe is not an easy task but it is critical. How do we balance the needs of national security while protecting civil liberties? It is a fundamental freedom for citizens of our nation to talk and reflect on the challenges facing all of us. This Town Hall will provide constituents an opportunity to engage in a civil dialog about how we as a community feel about the President’s authorization of domestic surveillance. There is fiery rhetoric on both sides of this issue, but I hope that this meeting can help raise the level of constructive dialog so that together we can discuss the delicate balance between national security and liberty,” said Congressman Cleaver.

The floor will be open for members of the community to join in the conversation, ask questions and express their opinions. This Town Hall follows the President’s visit to Manhattan, Kansas today where he briefly spoke to the issue of wiretapping. “I appreciate the President touching on his views surrounding the issue of domestic spying today at K-State, but it is not enough to make statements solely to your supporters. Part of leadership is listening to all sides. This is a serious issue, it is important we have a serious and balanced discussion.”

Who: Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II (MO-05) is joined by Constitutional scholars and members of the community.

What: A Community Town Hall to discuss the issue of domestic surveillance and the balance between national security and liberty.

When: Thursday, January 26, 2006 from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Where: Mohart Multipurpose Center, 3200 Wayne, Kansas City, Missouri 64109.

Emanuel Cleaver, II is the U.S. Representative for Missouri’s Fifth Congressional District and a member of the House Financial Services Committee
