U.S. Congressman John Barrow (D-12th District GA) meets with local constituents and takes questions about issues at Statesboro Mall as part of his district "Congress on the Corner" tour.
Amid a sizeable collection of inquiring citizens, and just steps away from armed police officers keen to his every move, Congressman John Barrow met with the public Saturday, in Center Court of the Statesboro Mall. The “Congress on the Corner” event was held as an opportunity for potential voters to visit one-on-one with the House Representative of Georgia’s 12th District, and was similar to the public forum near Tucson, Arizona last week where 19 people were shot and six killed – Among the wounded was Ariz. Representative, and “blue-dog” Democrat, Gabriel Giffords.
