Rain Doesn’t Dampen LaMalfa Town Hall

Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, is no stranger to loud, interruptive constituents, and those who attended Wednesday’s town-hall-style meeting at the MacLaughlin Auditorium at Sequoia Middle School were no exception.

Even so, Parker Williams, LaMalfa’s Communication Director, put the meeting in perspective. “You know, compared to Oroville, Redding was pretty nice.”

A capacity crowd estimated in excess of 600 thundered at times in counterpoint to hot-topic issues related to health care and climate change concerns.

Even though the heavy rains also pounded the Sequoia Middle School auditorium, the first district Congressman stood his ground on stage, fielding passionate comments from two non-stop lines of mostly dissenting opinions and questions.
