Coffman To Hold 1st Town Hall Since Tucson Shooting

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — Republican Rep. Mike Coffman says his town hall meeting Wednesday night in Castle Rock would be routine — but it’s believed to be the first congressional town hall meeting Colorado since the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords last month at a constituent event in Arizona.

Coffman planned to meet with about 100 people at the Douglas County Commissioners Hearing Room. Aides say the meeting will be a routine public event for residents with questions about what’s going on in Congress.

Coffman’s aides say security will be in place at the town hall, but no more than usual. Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter canceled a “Government in the Grocery” event in suburban Denver last month because of security concerns. A Feb. 12 event remains on Perlmutter’s schedule.
