Congressman Cresent Hardy will host a veterans town hall meeting in Pahrump on Thursday, Feb.18.
The question-and-answer session will take place at the Nye County Commission chambers, located at 2100 E. Walt Williams Drive from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
“The most important thing I can do to effectively represent my constituents is to listen to them,” the Republican Hardy said in a statement. “These town halls will provide that opportunity and a way for us to discover potential solutions to some of our veterans’ most pressing issues.”
Tonopah residents can watch and participate in the Pahrump town hall at Tonopah County Commission Chambers, located at 101 Radar Road in Tonopah.
Beatty residents can participate at the event at Bill Sullivan Justice Center, located at 426 C Avenue South in Beatty.
Jacob Fullmer, communications director for Hardy, said officials at the event will answer questions on many topics such as home loans, education benefits and medical benefits.
“Congressman Hardy feels that our veterans have given the highest service possible to our country and it’s important to make sure they receive the service that was promised to them,” Fullmer said.
Panelists at the event include state Assemblyman James Oscarson, Director of Veterans Benefits Administration Shelia Jackson, Director of VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System Peggy Kearns, Deputy Director of Benefits at NDVS Kathleen Dussault and Patrick Shipley, Southwest Regional Director for Tri-West.
The event will be held nearly three weeks after a groundbreaking event for the long-awaited Pahrump Valley Veterans Clinic. The $12.1 million project is expected to open next year north of Desert View Hospital on South Lola Lane.
Hardy is currently seeking a second term in Congress, while the Republican Oscarson is seeking another term representing Assembly District 36.
