A peaceful demonstration gathered in front of the Evansville Federal Building early Friday afternoon where the local office of Congressman Larry Bucshon is located. Among the demonstrators were Republican Precinct Committeemen Brenda Bergwitz and Phillip Schultz, Vanderburgh County Libertarian Party Chairman Bart Gadau, and a host of other activists both inside and outside the Republican Party.
The focus of the demonstration was to draw the attention of Congressman Bucshon and ask for a local town hall Q&A session to be held. The demonstrators say they have questions for the Congressman they’d like to ask in a public forum. Among the most prevalent questions of the day seem to center around the defunding of Obamacare and a forced Congressional vote on any military action in Syria.
Around 30 to 35 people were present at the height of the demonstration. Organizers say another demonstration will be held when Congressman Bucshon has his scheduled fundraiser at the American Patriot Group White House building on Evansville’s east side.
This author would like to know if holding such a fundraiser in a building owned by a military contractor at a time when the US is talking about yet another military intervention in the Middle East is appropriate. Time will tell if the Congressman holds a town hall locally to answer these and other constituent concerns.
