Marshall town hall tonight in Warner Robins

Local citizens have a chance to send a message to Washington tonight when U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall holds a town hall meeting in Warner Robins.

The meeting is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. at the Homer J. Walker Jr. Civic Center at 702 Watson Blvd.

Marshall, a former Macon mayor, is a fourth-term Democrat representing Georgia’s 8th Congressional District, which includes Warner Robins, Macon, Perry, Forsyth, Jackson, Dublin, Tifton and Moultrie. He held a town hall meeting in Forsyth on Wednesday. About 450 people attended the Forsyth meeting, at which health-care reform was the dominant topic. The turnout was so great that Marshall moved his Warner Robins meeting from a local VFW post to the much larger civic center.
