Press Release

Congressman Greg Gianforte recently held a town hall event with Montana seniors, his sixth telephone town hall event of 2019.

“I appreciate every chance I get to talk to Montanans,” Gianforte said. “With town halls, I hear about issues important to folks and carry their concerns with me as I serve them. I look forward to continuing these conversations as I travel the state and meet with more Montanans during this in-state work period.”

Gianforte’s telephone town hall reached Montana seniors throughout the state. Gianforte took questions from constituents in Polson, Sealey Lake, Libby, and Whitehall, as well as other Montana towns and cities.

Many of the questions Montanans posed to Gianforte related to health care, prescription drugs, Medicare, immigration, robocalls, and federal spending.

Gianforte also held a town hall for Montana seniors in April. He has held four other telephone town halls in 2019.

During the town hall event, Gianforte posed five questions to Montanans to gauge their opinions on various topics. The questions and answers follow:
