Flores talks immigration, Mueller report, term limits in Tuesday town hall
Unemployment, immigration, and the Mueller report were just a few of the topics discussed during an electronic town hall meeting hosted by Congressman Bill Flores Tuesday night.
Constituents in the northern part of District 17 (Falls, Freestone, Leon, Limestone, McLennan, Milam and Robertson) were invited to join Flores online or by phone. They heard about the work he's done in Washington, D.C., answered some poll questions and asked their own questions on various topics.
One woman asked Flores his thoughts on how Attorney General William Barr characterized the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.
"I actually read the Mueller Report last weekend. I thought he had a fairly accurate presentation. One of the things I was also pleased about is that the redactions in the report were pretty minor. I didn't count words or anything like that, but it looked like less than 10% of the Mueller Report was redacted."
Congressman Flores was also asked if he would adhere to a statement he has made regarding term limits for himself.
"When I initially ran, I said that I would run for no more than six terms, which is 12 years. I'm in my fifth term right now, so the most number of terms, of additional terms I would run for would be one additional term," said Congressman Flores.
A second electronic town hall meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 1 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This one is for constituents in southern counties: Bastrop, Brazos, Burleson, Lee, and Travis.
