Shutdown, borders top town hall topics

Constituents on both sides of the aisle let Wisconsin 8th District Rep. Mike Gallagher know their thoughts on the recent partial government shutdown during a pair of Door Peninsula town hall meetings Monday. Rep. Gallagher continued his town hall tour of the 8th District with events at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg and the Knights of Columbus Hall in Sturgeon Bay. During the town halls he spoke of his support for border security, one of the sticking points partially to blame for last month’s 35-day shutdown. Rep. Gallagher believes one big theme he touched on during his town halls was that problems do not age well.

After spending the day in the Door Peninsula, Rep. Gallagher headed back to Washington D.C. for Tuesday’s State of the Union. He says he hopes President Donald Trump addresses border security and rising international tension during the address.
