U.S. Rep. Jared Polis is abandoning the teleconference and online town hall format he’s fond of to hold an actual town hall meeting, in person.
Hold the applause, because there’s a lot of rules that apply in order to attend the event Sunday in Fort Collins at Colorado State University.
First, attendees have to pre-register to attend. No signs are allowed and “large bags are discouraged.”
We don’t know if he’s referring to backpacks or old lady handbags, but Polis is going high-security for this event. He’s demanding that everyone arrive 20 minutes early to enter a security checkpoint.
It sounds more like an airport than a town hall meeting. We’re a little surprised, considering the recent protests at the faux town hall events were staged by Democrats. One would think he felt safe among his own constituents.
