Pueblo Town Hall Postponed

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner announced today that he will be rescheduling his town hall in Pueblo, CO originally scheduled to take place on Friday, October 6th.  

Gardner has been asked by the White House to attend a bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Delegation to the hurricane-ravaged territory of Puerto Rico leaving in the early morning hours on Saturday, October 7th. The Congressional Delegation will be traveling with senior officials from the White House, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.

While on the American island, Gardner and his colleagues will be surveying damaged areas, and meeting with Puerto Rican Governor Rico Rossello, US Coast Guard and local officials. As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Energy, Gardner has been a bipartisan leader in the Senate in calling for the Department of Energy to help restore power to the island. More than 90% of the island is still without power. 

Senator Gardner will be staying in Washington in advance of the Congressional Delegation trip for the Senate Budget Committee’s consideration of the FY2018 budget resolution and to participate in briefings on Friday to discuss the situation in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands in advance of the bipartisan Congressional Delegation on Saturday.  

Gardner’s office will be rescheduling the Pueblo town hall in the near future. In addition to a public announcement by Gardner’s Senate office for the rescheduled town hall date, constituents are encouraged to follow Senator Gardner on social media, or sign-up for his e-newsletter, for more information.
