Yesterday, there was a hail of criticism on social media when the centrist House Blue Dogs put out a photo of their new members and both she and Jeff Van Drew were there, along with Josh Gottheimer (DINO Van Drew, no surprise). I wrote about that here, so did Bill Orr. That ramped up the call to Sherrill to explain that choice and check in with the people who sent her to Congress. Rodney Frelinghuysen was shamed out of his own re-election campaign by failing to show up and answer constituents’ questions, so groups like NJ 11th for Change made town halls a requirement of their candidate, Sherrill. This morning, Sherrill files this report about her Day 7 of Freshman orientation, and pledges her first town hall the week of January 14, 2019.
That’s just a couple weeks after the 116th Congress is sworn in, date to be set after the House schedule is set in the new year.
OK, Tom Malinowski, Jeff Van Drew and Andy Kim – pressure’s on you now. When can we expect your first town hall?
