Langevin Launches Iraq Listening Tour Tomorrow

Sep 26, 2002
(Warwick, R.I.)–Congressman Jim Langevin today announced that he will travel the Second Congressional District tomorrow to hear the views and concerns of his constituents regarding the President's proposed use of force against Iraq.

 The House of Representatives is expected to vote upon a resolution next week that would give the President authority to use military force against Iraq.

 “A vote on whether or not to approve the use of American military force against another nation is one that must not be made lightly,” said Congressman Langevin.  “As we work to preserve democracy and defend our nation, it is only right that I provide the people of Rhode Island the opportunity to share their thoughts on this important and serious issue.  My decision on the use of force will be made based upon what I feel is the right direction for our nation and the people of Rhode Island’s Second Congressional District.” 

 Langevin’s tentative schedule is as follows:

 12:30 p.m.  Warwick Mall
    400 Bald Hill Road
 3:00 p.m.  Wakefield Mall
    160 Old Tower Hill Road 
 4:30 p.m.  Media Availability
    Congressman Langevin’s Congressional District Office
    300 Centerville Dr.
    Warwick, R.I.

 All Rhode Island residents are encouraged to share their thoughts or concerns with Congressman Langevin regarding the upcoming vote.
