Speaker of the Legislature Joanna Poole hosted the second town hall of the 9th Congress at Rockford Hills City Plaza on February 25, 2024 at 5pm EST. Stella Day of Weazel News recorded the meeting.

Ari’s Deli was outside and was providing catering that was paid for as part of the meeting. There is a restaurant catering every town hall. Reach out to the Legislature to be that restaurant as soon as possible. There are only 3 town halls remaining for the 9th Congress.

Shout News was also present and published an article covering the public outrage over police SOP’s. Give it a read to learn more.
