U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, has scheduled town hall meetings next week in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton.
• On Wednesday, Deutch will speak to constituents and answer questions at 7 p.m. at Holiday Park Social Center at 1150 G. Harold Martin Drive in Fort Lauderdale.
• On Thursday, Deutch will appear at 10:30 a.m. at the Mae Volen Senior Center at 1515 West Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton.
Deutch, elected to Congress in 2010, represents Palm Beach-Broward District 22.
Deutch recently appeared on CNN to call for a congressional vote on censuring President Donald Trump over his response to the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., and in particular Trump’s suggestion that there were “fine people” among those marching against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.
Deutch noted that his father was wounded fighting Nazis in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II.
“This is a moment for Democrats and Republicans to come together to make a historical record that the United States Congress and the people we represent are appalled, appalled and disgusted, when the president of the United States looks at what happens and tries to provide cover for the anti-Semites and the racists who were marching in Charlottesville,” Deutch said.
