U.S. Rep. Mark Green, (R-TN-07) announced that he will host a series of Facebook and Tele-Town Halls about COVID-19 starting Thursday.
Green said this in an email to his constituents Tuesday that people may ask questions and that they will also receive the most up-to-date information about the virus.
The Tele-Town Hall is scheduled for 5 p.m. Central Standard Time March 26, on Green’s congressional Facebook page.
“If you have any questions, you can either email me ahead of time at [email protected] or leave a comment during the livestream,” Green said in the email.
Green is not the first public figure to host a Facebook Tele-Town Hall to discuss the virus.
As The Tennessee Star reported last week, U.S. Republican senatorial candidate Manny Sethi already had one of his own.
Sethi, who wants to replace the retiring U.S. Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, submitted to a question and answer session with voters, some of whom asked about current conditions in Italy versus what might happen in the United States. In it, Sethi said, among other things, the United States must rely less on China for pharmaceutical drugs, hospital gowns, surgical caps, and medical supplies. Sethi went on to say the coronavirus is “a national security issue.”
As The Tennessee Star reported Tuesday, Sethi’s opponent, Republican Bill Hagerty, is scheduled to host a telephone town hall Wednesday with National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow. The announcement of the town hall comes amid ongoing negotiations between the White House and Democratic leadership over a stimulus package intended to provide economic relief during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I am honored National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow will be able to answer questions from Tennesseans on how the administration is working to stabilize our economy and help small businesses, employees, and families in the weeks ahead,” Hagerty said in a statement.
Hagerty’s town hall is scheduled for Wednesday morning at 10:30 CT, Hagerty’s campaign said.
