U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) — who has hosted public town hall meetings in Missouri throughout her time in the U.S. Senate — will hold a public town hall at the Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center in Monroe City on Thursday, July 6.
Public town halls with Missourians have been a hallmark of McCaskill’s time in the Senate, including a recent eight-stop town hall tour across the state. During debate over the Affordable Care Act—at a time of heightened demonstrations against the law—McCaskill held a series of highly publicized town halls, including in traditionally conservative areas of Missouri, to hear directly from Missourians about their concerns and respond to criticisms. In 2014, McCaskill logged more than 1,000 miles around the state on her “McCaskill on Main Street” series of public town halls.
McCaskill has also toured the state with town halls aimed at military veterans and seniors—and has hosted individual town halls, such as one she hosted last year with then-U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack focused on the opioid epidemic.
