Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer invited interested citizens from across the 7th Congressional district to participate in advisory council meetings this week.  The advisory councils engaged different sectors within our communities throughout the district including agriculture, small business, veterans/defense, law enforcement/DHS, healthcare, and education.  Meetings were held in Johnston, New Hanover, and Bladen Counties.

“The advisory councils provide an opportunity for us to share ideas on the many complex issues we are facing as well as provide a forum for concerns to be heard and addressed,” said Representative Rouzer.

“It is important to me to have a variety of viewpoints and experience to draw upon as we work towards making changes in Washington.  We must reduce the burdens an overly intrusive government has created while making improvements in those areas where government has a legitimate and constitutional responsibility.  

“I look forward to working with these distinguished men and women.  Their insights into issues that affect the district are invaluable."
