Republican 8th district Congressman Warren Davidson is expected to attend a town hall meeting Tuesday in Enon. It will be Davidson’s second such town hall event in as many weeks as Congress continues its spring recess.

The town hall, scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Enon VFW, is being organized by Miami Valley anti-Trump coalition Indivisible.

Some members of that group walked out of Davidson’s last town hall meeting in Troy, saying the format did not allow constituents to have their voices heard.

The Troy event was organized by Tea Party group Miami County Liberty.

Indivisible Springfield organizer Pamela Dixon says the Enon town hall was designed to be less contentious, and include the opportunity for audience members to carry protest signs.

“This town hall is very much an open forum," she says. "Questions will be taken directly from the floor with the opportunity for follow-up, whereas [at] last week's event the questions were written down in advance and there was no opportunity for follow-up.”

Davidson is a member of the conservative and libertarian House Freedom Caucus. He was elected to fill the seat of Former House Speaker John Boehner last year.
