Is McNerney Dodging His Constituents?

Is Congressman McNerney dodging his constitituents while he is home during the Congressional recess? Calls to his office and the District Events page on his website show that he has no Town Hall Meetings scheduled during the recess. Given the number of things that the Congress is trying to ram through with minimal discussion, without a doubt the Congressman knows his constituents want to get some questions answered and to give some feedback. There were multiple reports that Speaker Pelosi instructed Democrats in the House to cancel any town hall meetings to avoid videos of angry voters. Please call the Congressman's Pleasanton office (925-737-0727) NOW and request that he immediately hold town hall meetings, in sufficiently large venues to hold those wanting to attend and be heard (i.e. not very small rooms conveniently filled with ardent supporters). Your feedback on whether you get the runaround would be of interest to all.
