Third District Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) held town hall meetings in both Cedar Springs and Sparta, on Monday, July 1.
He was at the Sparta Carnegie Township Library, 80 N. Union in Sparta from noon to 1 p.m., and then at Creative Technologies Academy, 350 Pine Street in Cedar Springs from 6 to 7 p.m. Ben VanderVeen, a spokesman for Rep. Amash, said the meetings turned out well, with about 45-50 people at the Sparta meeting and 50 to 60 in Cedar Springs.
Rep. Amash gave a 5 to 10 minute update on some specific issues and then opened it up to questions from the audience. The meetings ran about an hour each.
“He (Amash) was pretty pleased with how they went,” said VanderVeen.
The representative tries to hold two to four town hall meetings a month throughout the third district.
