Crapo Plans May iTownhall Meeting

Idahoans can participate in statewide teleconference May 7th

Washington, DC - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo will hold an interactive iTownhall meeting with Idahoans on the evening of May 7th. The technology behind the iTownhall meeting allows Idahoans to join in via telephone from any location in the state. Participation is voluntary, and listeners are invited to ask the Senator questions about any topics confronting Congress and the nation. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. Mountain/6:30 p.m. Pacific and will last for about an hour.

"Joining the town hall discussion is as easy as signing up at my homepage by clicking on the iTownhall icon," Crapo said. "The technology allows me to connect with Idahoans when I am not able to get back home during times when the Senate is in session. I would invite any Idahoans who are interested in learning more about the issues we are dealing with in the U.S. Senate to sign up; it's as easy as logging onto my official website at http://crapo.senate.gov. I look forward to talking with those who chose to participate next Wednesday evening."

Crapo began hosting iTownhall meetings in November 2007, and will be using them quarterly to allow Idahoans another opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with him. Calls are placed to Idaho about ten minutes before the call is scheduled to begin, and participants are invited to ask questions throughout the hour. Audio files and transcripts of previous iTownhall meetings are available on Crapo's website.
