Washington, D.C. — Congressman Vern Buchanan announced today he will hold a town hall meeting in the East County this week.
The meeting will be at 4 p.m., Aug. 20, in the auditorium at Braden River High School, 6545 S.R. 70 E. Buchanan will meet with constituents to discuss health care, jobs and the economy.
