Congressman Sanford Bishop hosts town hall

Rep. Bishop discusses issues at public forum

It today's political climate voters on the right, the left or somewhere in between have concerns.

“In our congressional district, the people in Georgia, and the people of America are faced with a myriad of challenges that affect their quality of life, their safety, and their future,” Congressman Sanford Bishop said.

That’s why he hosted a town hall Q&A in Macon Thursday night. He tried to tackle a variety of topics from education to agriculture and even what to do with the affordable care act.

“While there were some problems and issues with it, I believe that it’s a bill or law rather that should be repaired rather than repealed,” Bishop said.  

He also took questions about the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian tampering in the 2016 election.

“I think we need independent commission to look at the whole scenario and report the findings and with recommendations to the American people,” Bishop said.


He says hearing questions from voters in his district keep him in check, making sure he’s fighting for what they want him to.

“The issues and the challenges that we face they are not partisan challenges,” Bishop said. “They are not Democrat or Republican challenges and the solutions to those challenges are not Republican or Democratic solutions they’ll be American solutions.”
