Nick Lampson Launches "Congress At Your Corner" in Texas CD-22

Well Nick Lampson may still be in the hospital recovering from his quadruple bypass surgery, but his in-district staffers are not. Fortunately for us here in Texas CD-22 they are embarking on a new constituent outreach program that they are calling “Congress at Your Corner”.

I think it’s a great idea.

Here is part of the news release:

Congressman Lampson's "Congress at Your Corner" Program in Clear Lake, Richmond/Rosenberg, Galveston County
Representatives to enhance constituent outreach efforts

Stafford, TX - Staff from Congressman Nick Lampson's (D-Stafford) office will be at various locations to hear from constituents and enhance constituent outreach in District 22 through a new program called "Congress at Your Corner.”

They have three events planned the first two weeks of April.
On April 4th they are going to be in Sekula-Gibbsville, also known as Clear Lake.

Congress at Your Corner - Clear Lake

Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Public Library, 16616 Diana Lane, on Wednesday, April 4, 5:30-6:30 pm.

On April 9th they are going to be in the Richmond/Rosenberg area.

Congress at Your Corner - Richmond/Rosenberg

George Memorial Public Library, 1001 Golfview Drive in Richmond, on Monday, April 9, 5:30-6:30 pm.

And on April 10th they are going to be in the Galveston area.

Congress at Your Corner – Galveston

Mae S. Bruce Public Library, 13302 6th Street, on Tuesday, April 10, 5-6 pm.

Those with questions on this should contact Congressman Lampson's Stafford office at 281-240-3700.

This is a new initiative that has come out on both coasts, and now Texas. Freshman Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-11) and Freshman Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-20) have already set up these initiatives in their districts.

Interestingly enough, both Gillibrand and McNerney have the honor of being on Karl Rove's Hit List along with Nick Lampson.

What a coincidence.
