Congressman Andy Harris Holds Town Halls on Eastern Shore


Representative Andy Harris, a Republican representing Maryland’s first congressional district, comprised of the entire Eastern Shore began a series of town halls in Wicomico County on Monday evening.

Representative Harris appeared at the Black Diamond Lodge in Fruitland to hear from constituents and update them on his work in Congress. At the event, which the Congressman’s Office says was well attended, Mr. Harris made his position known on a number of issues in the news as of late: including President Trump’s national emergency declaration, to healthcare and gun control.

According to social media postings, one woman was escorted out of the town hall after making inflammatory comments about Representative Harris.

Representative Andy Harris has a town hall scheduled for Tuesday on the Western Shore. That will take place at the Joppa-Magnolia Fire Hall in Harford County from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. He will be back on the Eastern Shore for his final town hall of this series at the Grasonville Fire Hall in Queen Anne’s County. That event will take place Wednesday from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. It is open to all constituents from Maryland’s First District.
