State Rep. Dan Caulkins is hosting a Town Hall event with his colleagues State Reps. Brad Halbrook (R-Shelbyville) and Tim Butler (R-Springfield) to discuss issues such as abortion, the 2nd Amendment and taxes with constituents on Sunday, Mar. 31.

“This is an opportunity for area residents to come and talk to local representatives on the issues important to them,” Caulkins said. “I hope people come away from this town hall event with a better understanding of what is happening in Springfield and as importantly, what they can do about it.”

The event will be from 2 to 4 p.m. on Mar. 31 at the Decatur Conference Center and Hotel, located at 4191 US 36 West in Decatur. Doors open at 1 pm.

Rep. Caulkins’ said town hall events in other parts of the state have drawn hundreds of people and he expects the event on the 31st will also attract large numbers.

“People are concerned about the far-left policies coming out of Springfield,” Caulkins said. “I have talked to many people in my district and they are frustrated with what is happening. People are coming to these town hall events because they want to have a voice in the process and it seems that too often those of us who live in rural communities are being ignored. Everyone who is concerned about what is happening right now in our State Capitol should come to this event and be heard.”
