Congressman Brad Sherman recently hosted five town hall meetings in the San Fernando Valley. On Monday March 17th, Sherman held a meeting to discuss issues facing senior citizens at the Fountainview Jewish Home. Sherman highlighted his continued work to lower the cost of prescription drugs, as well as fight against any plan that privatizes Social Security or turns Medicare into a voucher program.
Three of the town hall meetings were held at Valley high schools with a focus on issues related to students and younger citizens. During Congressman Sherman’s time in Congress he has met with students of nearly every public and private school in the San Fernando Valley. This week Sherman’s meetings were held at El Camino Real Charter High School in Woodland Hills, the Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences in Granada Hills, and Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City. During these town hall meetings, Sherman spoke about his work in the nation’s capital and answered questions from the students. He also presented a flag flown above the U.S. Capitol to the student body president of each school.
