John Tanner's Tele-Town Hall Meetings

8TH DISTRICT – U.S. Rep. John Tanner will continue to seek input from 8th Congressional District families through telephone town hall meetings where West and Middle Tennesseans can ask questions on health care, the economy, energy and other issues facing the country.

Telephone town hall meetings are a relatively new format to allow up to thousands of participants to talk together so families from across our district can share their views and hear Congressman Tanner’s remarks on issues of mutual concern. A tele-town hall meeting is one of the best tools for Members of Congress and others to reach thousands of constituents at one time.
