Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL - FRANK E. LOCK­WOOD

WASH­ING­TON — U.S. Sen. John Booz­man is invit­ing Arkansans to join him for a tele-town hall this week.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple have signed up for the hour­long con­fer­ence call, which be­gins at 7:30 p.m. Mon­day.

But there’s room for plenty more, his of­fice said.

Any­one wish­ing to par­tic­i­pate can reg­is­ter at booz­man. se­nate.gov/pub­lic/in­dex.cfm/ signup-for-tele­phone-town halls.

Those who sub­mit their in­for­ma­tion will get a phone call shortly be­fore the event be­gins.

“Tele­phone town halls al­low me to con­nect with Arkansans all over the state and dis­cuss top­ics im­por­tant to them. I look for­ward to the con­ver­sa­tion,” Booz­man said in a news re­lease.

The Repub­li­can from Rogers will an­swer ques­tions from call­ers.

The size of the au­di­ence likely will fluc­tu­ate through­out the hour, ac­cord­ing to Booz­man spokesman Pa­trick Creamer.

“Some peo­ple hang around for 10 or 15 min­utes. Other peo­ple hang around the whole time,” he added.
