Schiff to Host Online Town Hall Wednesday

The congressman, who represents Altadena, will take questions from constituents on Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who represents Altadena, will be hosting an online town hall on Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday.

Below is the email from Schiff's office with all the details on how it will work:

I’m writing to invite you to join in an #AskAdam online town hall this Wednesday, July 11th at 4:00 p.m. For an hour, I’ll be answering your questions on Facebook and Twitter about everything from the recent decision by the Supreme Court on the health care reform law, to ways to get our economy back on track and creating jobs, and whatever else you want to ask about.

Here is how you can participate:

How to Participate on Facebook

Ask a question on Rep. Schiff’s Facebook page any time on Tuesday and Wednesday, and he will try to get to as many as possible. You can login to his Facebook page here.

How to Participate on Twitter

Tweet at Rep. Schiff’s Twitter account (@RepAdamSchiff) and use the hashtag #AskAdam anytime on Tuesday and Wednesday, and he will try to get to as many questions as possible.

Last week we conducted a Telephone Townhall, and this week we are trying something new to stay in touch with an online town hall, and I hope that you can join. If we can’t get to your question during #AskAdam, I’ll answer a few questions via YouTube and share the answers.

You can always share your thoughts through Facebook or Twitter, and I hope you’ll sign up for my e-newsletter. Through these quick-read updates, I hope to keep you informed of my work at home and in Washington, D.C. on issues of interest to our communities, as well as provide an opportunity for you to keep me informed of your views and interests. As always, I welcome hearing from you on these and any other issues, and hope that you will stay in touch.

I've participated in past phone-in Town Hall meetings with Rep. Schiff and find them a terrific way to ask questions and share those questions with others in the community as well as the Congressman; however, some of us (for personal or online security reasons) do not sign up on FaceBook nor use Twitter. Please provide an alternative way to ask a question, as in past Town Hall conference call meetings. Patronizing social media sites only (however popular they are) limits questions from the public, particularly those of an older generation that now have computers, but who do not use either twitter nor FaceBook, or those (like myself) who do not "like" these sites for whatever reason. Thanks!

P.S. One clarification: For "online only" Town Hall meetings I suggest at least adding the option of participating via a teleconference site or e-mail instead of being forced to joing via FaceBook or Twitter. Better yet, stick with call in Town Hall meetings that all folks can access via their land lines or smart phones! Thanks again!
