MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Congressman Tom Rice (SC-07) has been ranked among the top 15 members of Congress in number of town hall events hosted, according to Legistorm, an independent, non-partisan database of Congressional information. Since January 1, 2015, Congressman Rice has hosted 48 in-person events, and more than 100 since taking office in January 2013.
 
“My title is Representative and I can’t do that unless I hear from all of my constituents,” said Congressman Rice. “In addition to my frequent telephone town halls, email communications, and office hours, I also host in-person ‘Coffee with Your Congressman’ events throughout all eight counties of the Seventh District. I try very hard to be as accessible as possible, and as long as my title is Representative I will continue to meet with and hear from folks all across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee.”
 
Congressman Rice currently ranks 13 out of 535 members in both the House and the Senate in number of in-person town halls hosted. More information is available here.
