Congressman Andy Kim holds town hall at OCC


Staff Report

Congressman Andy Kim will hold a town hall meeting at Ocean County College on Monday, November 11, at 5 p.m. in the Lecture Hall of the Gateway Building. The event will feature veterans from across New Jersey’s Third Congressional District, who will share their stories and discuss issues important to the veteran community.

“Our town halls are my chance to hear from you on what’s important, and as we approach Veterans Day, hearing from veterans in Ocean and Burlington Counties is one of the most important things we can do,” said Congressman Kim. “Our Congressional District has more veterans than any other in New Jersey, and their issues impact us all.”

Congressman Kim has been a vocal proponent for a new veterans’ health care facility in Ocean County, and has introduced bipartisan legislation to protect veterans from VA errors. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, he’s led efforts to strengthen resiliency programs at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, strengthen economic opportunities for military spouses, and require the Department of Defense to the end use of harmful PFAS chemicals.

“I want to thank Ocean County College for hosting this event and our local veterans who will share their stories,” said Congressman Kim. “This day is about them, and I look forward to having a chance for our community to honor their service.”

This will be the fourteenth town hall held by Congressman Kim during the 116th Congress, and part of a monthly series to allow the Congressman to hear directly from constituents throughout New Jersey’s Third District.
