Amash explains views to voters at town hall meeting

Justin Amash host town hall meeting in Cedar Springs

CEDAR SPRINGS, MICH. - West Michigan Republican Congressman Justin Amash faced the voters to explain his views.

He has opposed the President's immigration ban, he didn't support the Obama Care replacement bill and complained about the cruise missile attack on Syria.

Amash hosted a town hall meeting at Cedar Springs High School Monday, April 10. He answered questions on any subject for two and a half hours.

Even though they may not have agreed with his answers, many said they were glad he gave them a chance to ask about their issues.

They were there to talk about a number of issues; Jan Strait focused on the climate. Mary Balon wants him to support the Affordable Care Act more. Meg Leigh asked, “What solutions can be brought forward that serve the majority of the public?"

The Congressman says he is not intimidated after President Trump threatened to support a candidate to run against him in the next election. He said, "It wouldn’t be the first time someone has tried that, I represent the people of the district and they want me to use that independent judgment.

"I’ll continue to do that and not worry about any threats from anyone.”

Congressman Amash has town halls scheduled Tuesday night in Battle Creek and Wednesday in Byron Center.
