During the event, Sen. Whitehouse will listen to the concerns of local residents and take questions.
During the event, Sen. Whitehouse will discuss his fight to support small businesses, encourage job growth and protect emergency unemployment insurance for Rhode Islanders struggling to find work. He will also share his thoughts regarding the preservation of Social Security and Medicare benefits, as well as protecting our environment and local economy from the harmful effects of climate change.
"Listening to constituents is one of the most important -- and meaningful -- things I get to do as your Senator," Sen. Whitehouse says on his web site. "Hearing your personal stories and your ideas inspires me to fight every day for the hard-working families and small businesses of our state and that's why I make a point to host community dinners: for the opportunity to listen to you."
