Taxpayers paying for the promotion of Shuster's event...and getting only 120 people to attend? Not a good return on the investment, and not a good way to use taxpayers' money. The man has a huge reelection warchest. He should pay for these events from campaign funds.

I attended the event and thought it was fantastic. I, not being a Shuster supporter before, really appreciated his attempt to listen to the voters.

Also, I've noticed during my short time in Franklin Co, that the Public Opinion does not always give us the best synopsis of events like these. Those kids from Iraq stood up and thanked everybody in the room for the sacrafice our country made for theirs. Dont see Hook mention that! They explained how many lives were improved or saved by our intervention there. It actually opened my eyes on the war as a whole.

I thought Shuster was great and the event was great. If tax dollars went to pay for the invitations....so be it. Obama's certainly been spending our money on worse stuff than this.

I agree with this comment, and, I also attended this town hall meeting. Thank you Congressman Shuster for listening and communicating with us taxpayers.

I appreciate the comments from people who attended the meeting. I'd loved to have gone, but quite frankly, didn't have enough money for gas to get there, if I wanted to feed my family for the rest of the week.

I noticed Hook only quoted the handful of liberals in attendence and ignored 95% of the comments. Typical.

Many more kids from Iraq have been killed or maimed. They can not stand up. Dont see Hook mention that!

You have been in Franklin County a short time if you think Shuster is great. Looks like he could still fall back on used car sales.

I'm glad that they found another way to take and spend our(tax payers) money. Shuster might win this year, only because no one will put together a real charge to get him out. Next time elections roll around, Mr.Shuster clean out your office because the people want it back!
