U.S. Rep Hosts Town-Hall Meeting in Andrews

Congressman Mike Conaway hosted a town-hall meeting in Andrews Friday morning.
ANDREWS, TX (Big 2 New) – One of our local U.S. Congressmen is back home in West Texas.

Congressman Mike Conaway hosted a town-hall meeting in Andrews Friday morning.

Dozens of residents came out and asked questions of their U.S. Representative.

Some of the hot topics included: border security and immigration, along with the Benghazi attacks and Sgt. Bergdahl.

The solider was held captive by the Taliban for five years. He was freed late last month, in a controversial prisoner exchange with the terrorist group.

Congressman Conaway says he's glad Sgt. Bergdahl is back home safe, but he does not approve of the prisoner swap.

"It puts Americans around the world at risk for being taken hostage by -- pick a bad group that's out there,” Conaway stated. “And this president said I'll negotiate with them. It's unfortunately they've broken a long tradition of not negotiating with terrorists -- and this president choose to do that."

Conaway represents 29 counties in the 11th U.S. Congressional District of Texas, which spans from Andrews to Brownwood.

The congressman is currently in his fifth term and is running for reelection this November.
