Rep. Gallagher prepares for second term after hosting town halls

By Tim Kowols

 

Workforce concerns, health care, and even foreign policy are some of the issues concerning many residents in Wisconsin’s Eighth Congressional District according to Representative Mike Gallagher. Months before he begins his second term, Rep. Gallagher ruffled feathers in his own chamber in a recent editorial where he attacked the status quo in Congress by offering several reform-related ideas. He says it has opened the door to a broader conversation among liberals and conservatives to find common ground with respectful dialogue, something that was apparent in his recent town halls in Ashwaubenon and Appleton.
