U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) visited Lindsborg on Monday, Jan. 7 to conduct one of his town hall meetings at Bethany College.
“It’s great to be back in McPherson County and I’m doing what I always do when there’s a break away from Washington D.C.,” Moran said. “I use my weekends and any time around holidays to have what I call town hall meetings or listening stops. Sometimes it’s walking on Main Streets and spending time with folks who might not be able to make it to a town hall meeting because they work or they’re uncomfortable or intimidated.”
Since his election to the U.S. Senate, Sen. Moran has continued to hold town halls in each of Kansas’ 105 counties. Then-Congressman Moran traveled to each of the 69 counties during his annual “Big First Listening Tour.”
“This week we were in Lindsborg doing the McPherson County stop on another round of 105 town hall meetings starting at the beginning of the year,” Moran said. “It’s an awkward time with folks. The (government) shut down, a lot of conversations about the border wall/border security, so there’s a lot of angst. At the same time, we have our challenges here in Kansas, particularly with agriculture.”
