Default Congressman Marty Meehan will hold a town meeting at University of Mass Lowell (12/16

I received an invitation letter from Congressman Marty Meehan to attend the town meeting at 10am 12/16 at UMass Lowell.

http://www.house.gov/meehan/

Although the topic of the meeting is "Climate Change: Local Solutions to a Global Crisis". But it will be a good chance for us to meet congressman.

Congressman Marty Meehan is Fifth Congressional District of Massachusetts He does not support the CIR but he do support the elimination of backlog of GC. He is a member of both the House Armed Services and Judiciary Committees.

Most of the congressmen hold town hall meetings. This is their method of meeting with constituents.

This may be a great opportunity for you to push for skilled immigration. He may be against CIR. But no congressmen would say "no" to qualified individuals.

Explore opportunities for the congressman to place a bill of his own supporting skilled immigration.

Why not coordinate with the MA state chapter members?

Default Update from the event

I attended the event at UMass Lowell. Congressman Marty Meehan and new governor elect Deval Patrick were at the event. The topic of discussion was "global warming". Both governor and congressman took off after the event but I had a chance to talk to their staff.

One of congressman's staff went through the folder I provided with IV documents but he works for energy related issues and will pass to the staff dealing with immigration. He did provide me the senior staff member who looks into immigration issues. I'm going to email and try and meet him. Congressman Meehan is part of the judiciary committee related to immigration.

MA members> I'll send out a separate email to you guys and each one of us should contact and educate the congressman though his main focus seems to be the climate change issue.

Great effort. If all of us have the same kind of drive and effort, we will surely get the law passed soon.
Pls follow up with the staff and also try to get an appointment with this lawmaker. If you can go and take some other MA members along, it will be helpful.

Default will do..

Yes, that's my plan, to have MA and NH state members send emails to the congressman's office to try and get appointment. This will provide good opportunity to present the material from our resources section. thanks.

Will keep you posted.
