Privileged residents of a far western upscale lake community were treated to Third District Congressman Erik Paulsen’s town hall meeting early Tuesday night (Sept 6). For residents of the eastern part of the district it was challenging to get to the meeting in rush hour traffic at such a remote location as a high school in Minnetrista (population 6,000). Many residents of Bloomington, with a population 83,000, would welcome a visit from the all but invisible representative at one of our friendly venue’s, such as Creekside Community Center where seniors have pressing concerns about Social Security and Medicare. Other residents may wonder what Mr. Paulsen is doing to advance the fortunes of unemployed workers. His predecessor at least held a meeting at the Edina Community Center.
