WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Andy Kim will be hosting a town hall meeting on Wednesday, January 22nd at 12:30pm at Adrian Hall, 30 East Cape May Ave in Ocean Gate, New Jersey. This will be the sixteenth town hall held by Congressman Kim during the 116th Congress, and part of a monthly series to allow the Congressman to hear directly from constituents throughout New Jersey’s Third District. The Congressman, focused on issues impacting the lives of people in Burlington and Ocean Counties, will provide an update on efforts to lower prescription drug costs, address the opioid epidemic and support New Jersey’s veterans.
“The issues I heard about during our fifteen town halls in 2019 drove real action in Congress,” said Kim. “From seniors concerned about the cost of prescription drugs, to families struggling with opioid and addiction issues, my work in Congress begins with listening in New Jersey. I look forward to another robust conversation with our neighbors across Burlington and Ocean Counties and will bring those insights back Washington to fight for New Jersey families.”
At the Ocean Gate town hall, Kim will also be joined by Tiffany Muller, President and Executive Director of End Citizens United Action Fund, a group dedicated to ending the influence of money in politics. Kim and Muller will provide an update on efforts to reverse the impact of the Citizens United Supreme Court Case, which was decided 10 years ago.
Congressman Kim was a vocal advocate for the passage of H.R. 1, a bill that passed the House that strengthens ethics laws and puts political power back in the hands of the people.
In other news, Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) launched a new online resource for residents of Burlington and Ocean Counties to find organizations to help with everything from affordable housing to disability services.
“I’ve heard from countless neighbors at our town halls, and my office has gotten a number of questions, about where to find community resources for those in need,” said Congressman Kim. “We have a lot of great organizations helping people throughout Burlington and Ocean Counties, and we built this website to serve as a way for people to better connect with those who can help.”
