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.

A raucous mix of more than 200 Trump supporters and opponents crowded into a town hall meeting with Republican 8th district Congressman Warren Davidson Tuesday night in Troy. The event was hosted by Tea Party organization Miami County Liberty.

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

The event was one of many similar town halls planned around the country Tuesday as Congress begins a two-week recess this week.

As lawmakers in Washington prepare to vote on a Republican-backed bill to dismantle and replace the Affordable Care Act, more than 60 Affordable Care Act supporters protested Thursday in Moraine outside the Mandalay Banquet Center. It was the second Dayton-area health care protest in a week.

Organizers with the group Dayton Indivisible for All planned the rally to coincide with a county Republican Party fundraiser being held at the venue. Republican 10th District Congressman Mike Turner had originally been expected to appear at the event but was not able to attend.
