Angie Craig, United States Representative for Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District, could not avoid questions regarding her support for the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry into President Trump at her town hall meeting, which took place at Oak Crest Elementary in Belle Plaine last Saturday morning, Nov. 23. This event marked her 11th town hall meeting since taking office.
During the event, which saw roughly 30 people in attendance during an hour and a half period, Craig attempted to focus her message to the public on four major areas. Craig stated she was in support of lowering the cost of healthcare, improving infrastructure and creating jobs, supporting farm families, and increasing career and technical education.
In her opening remarks, Craig underscored her support and endorsement of a series of bills, including the 21st Century Workforce Partnerships Act, a piece of legislation that aims to expand opportunities for high school students to partner with Minnesota schools and businesses to develop career-track skills like manufacturing.
