Town Hall with Congressman Mike Thompson

U.S Congressman Mike Thompson, Representing California’s Fifth District

We have arranged for our 5th District Congressman Mike Thompson to meet with us at a Town Hall here in Benicia on Monday, March 18.

Co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of Benicia, Carquinez Patriotic Resistance, and Vallejo-Benicia Indivisible for Justice, the program will be held at the Benicia Senior Center, 187 East L St., 6:30 to 8:30 (doors open at 6:00).

This is a special opportunity to hear from our Congressman and to ask him questions. He has been asked to focus on five specific issues in his opening remarks, with follow-up questions from the audience on these issues, and others time permitting. The five issues are:

    • Gun violence prevention
    • the Green New Deal / Global warming
    • Health Care
    • Taxes / Economic Inequality
    • Immigration
