Woodall Participates in Duluth High School Town Hall
Duluth, GA—On Wednesday, February 02, 2011, Congressman Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) joined several hundred students in the auditorium of Duluth High School for a town hall-style discussion.
“I’ve always believed that Gwinnett County has some of the best and brightest students in the state, and my visit today confirmed that,” Woodall said.
Duluth High School is part of the Gwinnett County Public School System, which has received national recognition for its academic excellence.
Woodall fielded questions on a variety of issues including the FairTax, immigration, health care reform and education.
“These young people understand that the decisions our government makes today will affect their adult lives. I believe it is important to listen to what this generation has to say about the current policies in Washington, because what we spend now is what our children and our children’s children must pay for later,” Woodall said.
“Right now, Washington needs to change,” Woodall continued. “I am proud to be a part of that change, and I look forward to joining with these students to make that happen.”
Woodall plans to make Student Town Halls a regular practice in his District work and wants to keep students as involved with the government as the rest of his constituency. He has two more student events this week including a student editorial board round table discussion before his Open House on Thursday, February 3, and another Student Town Hall at the George Walton Academy in Monroe on February 4.
