UPDATE (9:20 a.m., Jan. 8, 2013): U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI7) made his first visit to town as Hudson's congressman on Monday afternoon as more than 25 people attended his listening session at the Hudson House Grand Hotel.
After Duffy spent the first few minutes addressing the fiscal cliff and the nation's debt crisis, St. Croix County Board Chairman Daryl Standafer moderated a question-and-answer session for the remainder of the hour.
The congressman fielded questions about term limits, political gridlock, local government finance, transportation infrastructure, Second Amendment rights, federal spending cuts, Social Security, healthcare, religious freedom, the farm bill and raising tax rates for high-income individuals.
ORIGINAL POST (8:50 a.m., Jan. 7, 2013): U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI7) will be in town on Monday, and he will hold his first local listening session as a congressman serving Hudson.
The event will take place at 5 p.m. at the Hudson House Grand Hotel, and it will last about an hour, according to John Gentzel, director of Communications for the Duffy administration.
Duffy was elected to his second term in November, but it will be his first term as Hudson's representative because of legislative rezoning in 2010. U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI3) remains in office, but his district no longer includes Hudson.
