Oklahoma U.S. Sen. Dr. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, plans to be in McAlester for a town hall meeting this week. — and he says he wants to hear from people in the area.
The meeting is set for 3 p.m. Friday in The Meeting Place at 104 E. Choctaw Ave. in downtown McAlester.
During the meeting, Coburn plans to deliver an update on issues facing the state and nation, as well as take questions from those attending the event.
“I encourage everyone to attend and participate in these town halls,” Coburn said in a statement issued from his Washington D.C. office.
“These settings give me an important opportunity to hear directly from the Oklahomans I am representing, and they provide a chance for Oklahomans to hear my views on current legislation in Congress,” Coburn said.
Before his McAlester meeting, Coburn plans to hold one at noon Friday at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center in Poteau.
