Another great letter to the editor of the CDT. An excerpt is below. Like Barbara, I too have heard Thompson’s Bellefonte field rep, Mike Glazer, misrepresent the nature and purpose of the Indivisible Guide; see the comment below for an audio recording.
I expressed the need for a town meeting to the staff member who sat in on our meeting. He told me he has seen a “playbook” by “Obama’s people” that detailed how to recruit and train people from outside districts to go to town meetings and disrupt them. That’s why Rep. Thompson is refusing town meetings. I called the representative’s office asking for proof of this claim with no reply.
Regardless, constituents deserve well-advertised, convenient town meetings with Rep. Thompson to engage in public dialogue about issues critical to all voters in District 5.
