National news outlets have been reporting on huge turnouts at town hall meetings across the country in which residents have been discussing their views on healthcare reform with representatives in Congress.


10th District Congressman Patrick McHenry has already held meetings in several counties including meetings in Newland and Spruce Pine last week and one in Hickory yesterday.


Our Foothills Bureau reports nearly 1,500 residents attended McHenry’s meeting yesterday at Lenoir-Rhyne University.


McHenry is scheduled to hold another meeting at the Lenoir Library on Thursday.


A spokesperson for Congresswoman Virginia Foxx said her office plans on holding a district-wide telephone town hall sometime next week.  At this point, Foxx’ office is still ironing out a few of the details.
