MEDIA ADVISORY

OCTOBER 14, 2017

SAN DIEGO –  Rep. Darrell Issa is in for a raucous recess week in CA-49 as voters clamor for answers on the impact of the Republican budget plan on average citizens. Despite being in a “district work week”, Issa failed to host an in-person town hall and has yet to accept the invitation of constituents who rented a hall in Oceanside to accommodate him. From mobile billboards to an airplane flyover to a 20’ chicken, District 49 is determined to encourage its representative to take questions on a federal budget that impacts all of our lives.

Money Talks: A Town Hall on the Federal Budget

Quantum Learning Network 1938 Avenida del Oro Oceanside 92056

Boondoggle immigration spending on detention facilities and the border wall will also be addressed, as these GOP priorities impact our region.
