Washington, DC (March 8, 2017) Congressman Steve Pearce today announced he will host a town hall this Saturday, March 11, 2017 in Hobbs, NM at 9:00 AM MST.  It will be held at the Lea County Event Center, Banquet Hall, 5101 N Lovington Hwy, Hobbs, NM 88240. This comes after Rep. Pearce hosted a telephone town hall that included over 10,000 participants and an in-person town hall last week in Ruidoso, NM, which drew over 300 residents.

“We had over 300 people at the town hall last weekend, and while we did not agree on everything, it allowed us to have a civil discussion and conversation about the health of our communities and the direction of our nation. As we move forward with a new Administration, it is imperative that we focus on things we can agree on, like greater opportunities for our children, safer communities, and a stronger economy,” stated Rep. Pearce. “Our state and our nation can accomplish great things if we put aside political disdain and unite around the desire to improve.”

Rep. Pearce continued to state, “this weekend, I’ll be back in my hometown for the Lea County centennial celebration. While there, I look forward to hearing from people in the community about what is important to them and their families. Together, we can work to find solutions that achieve our common goals for a stronger New Mexico.”

Lincoln County Democratic Chair Nina Grunseth attended last week’s town hall and highly praised Rep. Pearce on his demeanor and overall control of the crowd stating, “the Congressman answered every question he was asked… The answer may not have been the one that we wanted, but he did answer.”
