BRIDGEWATER -

Congressman Leonard Lance, the U.S representative for New Jersey's seventh congressional district, will host his 46th in-person town hall meeting this Saturday.

The town hall will begin at 9 a.m. at Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School in Bridgewater. 

The free, ticketed event is only open to residents of the state’s seventh congressional district. Tickets are required for all attendees. They will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis online through Lance’s website beginning Thursday at noon.  There is a two ticket limit per online entry.  

According to Lance’s Westfield District Office, the congressman will take questions on the important issues facing Congress and the American people during the town hall.  He is also expected to discuss government funding, national security, Robert Mueller’s investigation, his leadership role in combatting sexual harassment, the successful reauthorization of CHIP and other issues.    

Additionally, members of Lance’s staff will be available at the meeting to assist residents who are experiencing difficulties with federal agencies such as the IRS, Social Security Administration, Veterans Affairs, the State Department or any other federal agency.
