Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer is hosting a meeting with the elected officials of New Hanover County on Monday, August 7.  This is a continuation of his practice of meeting with elected officials that he started during the previous Congress.  The goal of these meetings is to provide Congressman Rouzer and local leaders the opportunity to discuss federal issues impacting the area and to ensure an open dialogue on all matters of importance to the citizens of the 7th District.  

Topics on his agenda to discuss include coastal issues, such as dredging and coastal storm damage reduction, the opioid crisis, tax reform, updates on other legislative items of interest, and any other topic elected officials wish to discuss.  Though GenX is on the mind of every elected official, there is no new information for Congressman Rouzer to present that hasn’t already been publicly reported.  

As typical with meetings involving local, elected leaders, this meeting is invite only.  Members of the press are invited to observe the meeting to report on topics discussed should they wish to do so.
