LaMalfa Hosts Contentious Town Hall Meeting

If residents expected a calm, quiet meeting with their Congressman at a town-hall style meeting, that’s not what they got. The Grass Valley City Council Chambers were quite lively and interactive when Nevada County’s representative Doug LaMalfa hosted the gathering yesterday afternoon. In the hour-and-half long meeting, LaMalfa took about 25 minutes to update residents on things going on in Washington, including the pending nuclear deal with Iran. LaMalfa says he hasn’t completely made up his mind yet, but will likely vote no next month, largely because of Iran’s continuing desire to wipe out Israel…

Yesterday’s meeting was the first of 14 town-hall style meetings around LaMalfa’s district. There was also one in Colfax last night.
