U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger is making a series of appearances throughout the 9th District during this month’s congressional recess.
Monday’s town hall meeting at Queens University of Charlotte was the month’s first appearance by the first-term Republican from Charlotte.
Pittenger plans to appear throughout the district, which includes parts of Mecklenburg, Iredell and Union counties.
Elected last year, he succeeded GOP Rep. Sue Myrick, who had held the seat since 1995.
On Aug. 20, Pittenger will speak at the Dilworth Neighborhood Grille at a meeting sponsored by the Mecklenburg Evening Republican Women’s Club and The Republican National Hispanic Assembly NC.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. There’s a $5 cover.
