Joe Walsh town hall - Thursday, Woodstock

Rep. Joe Walsh will hold a town hall meeting tomorrow night. This will be on Thursday, September 1, at the Woodstock VFW, 240 N. Throop St., from 7:00-9:00PM.

I wondered why this event was not on his official House calendar, so I called his Fox Lake office. The Thursday night event at the VFW hall in Woodstock is on the "campaign side" of Joe's life, and so it is not displayed on his government calendar.

Should campaign events and official events be clearly identified in media releases and articles? Some residents might wish to attend an official town hall meeting to meet Joe, hear his official views and give him their 2¢ worth, but they might not wish to attend one of Joe's political campaign events.

The Northwest Herald gave a lot of attention this morning to an anti-Walsh rally planned for Thursday at 5:00PM, prior to Walsh's political meeting at the VFW. Democrat Terry Kappel is putting together a "Rally to Oppose Congressman Joe Walsh's Extreme Agenda". If you are interested in that side of things, show up at 5:00PM at the bandstand on the Woodstock Square. No doubt that demonstrators will gravitate to the VFW Hall and maybe even inside.

Just remember: How can you tell when a politician is lying (or campaigning)...his lips are moving.

Oops. Sorry to be politically insensitive. Works for female politicians as well.
