Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester's Congressional Conversation Attracts Many

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- Many Sussex Countians came out to Delaware Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester's Congressional Conversation in Georgetown on Thursday night.

Blunt Rochester updated constituents both on Washington events and heard concerns ranging from health care to tax reform.

"It's really an opportunity for the individuals here, our constituents to hear what is happening in Washington but more importantly for me to hear what's on their mind and what kind of things they want me to take back to Washington," she told WRDE.

Blunt Rochester told the audience about a newly introduced bill aimed at lowering prescription drug costs, which was another topic that many in the audience responded to. Another issue frequently brought up by the audience was the calls to impeach President Donald Trump--with people in the audience both for and against the measure. 

"In July after the report came out and was finished I actually took a stance to have an impeachment inquiry which is separate from just calling out for impeachment," Blunt Rochester said. "I really want to make sure we get all the facts and that the American people have all the facts because it's an important decision we have to make." 

The biggest theme of the evening, however, was unity, with Blunt Rochester frequently telling the crowd "we are in this together" and quoting the African proverb: "Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable."

Blunt Rochester also encouraged everyone to participate in the census.
