The Victorville Town Hall: We Didn’t Miss Paul Cook That Much, After All

It was no surprise that Congressman Paul Cook did not show up for the Town Hall he was invited to in Victorville on Saturday, but over 100 spirited constituents did.  A panel of five experts addressed issues of concern then took questions from the audience – as did a cardboard cut-out of Rep. Cook, who responded only, we’re sorry to say, with No Comment.  😉

The event was hosted by Indivisible Victor Valley and supported and attended by Indivisible groups from throughout Congressional District 8.  Here Joe Murphy of Indivisible Victor Valley gives a shout-out to some of the groups, including Indivisible Morongo Basin:

The jumbo “Where Is Paul Cook?” milk carton created by members of Indivisible Morongo Basin for the April 15 Tax Rally in Yucca Valley made the trip up to Victorville and struck a handsome pose outside the hall.  Everyone wanted their picture taken with it – here including organizers from Indivisible groups in Victor Valley, San Bernardino Mountains, and Yucaipa:

The Victorville Daily Press covered the event.

Indivisible Morongo Basin is so grateful to Indivisible Victor Valley and especially organizers Jason Graham and Joe Murphy for taking this on and hosting the event and doing a terrific job; as well as to all the District 8 Indivisible groups for their contributions.  Our own volunteer crew from IMB came a long way across the desert to do set-up and clean-up and staff the sign-in table – thank you Beth, Jaycene, MaryLou, Phyllis, Richard, Rick, and Yolanda. Thanks to our Relentless Callers team for showing up to sign up new members.  And a very special thank you to Yolanda and Greg for hauling our milk carton on to its next set of adventures – now with Indivisible Victor Valley!
