Constituents to hold ‘town hall’ on Friday

A group of local residents will gather for a “constituent town hall on health care and our economy” at the Community Arts Center in Danville at 5 p.m. Friday.

The gathering is being held to voice concerns to Sen. Mitch McConnell, but McConnell is not scheduled to be in attendance. The group says phone calls and emails requesting a public meeting with the senator went unanswered.
