On the agenda is Medicaid expansion, ethics reform, mental health, and transportation issues including the Route 1 multimodal study and a hybrid tax.

The town hall will be from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 25 at the Mount Vernon Government Center on 2511 Parkers Lane in Alexandria.

This is a valuable event hosted each year. Calling it a "legislative" town hall is a bit of a misnomer. By this point in the session, each has not only filed all the bills s/he intends to file, but has also made up his/her mind on issues. It should more properly be called an explanation of what they're doing. I attend most years and, while citizens are invited to speak, their input does little to nothing to sway opinions. This is a square-filler, as are the "surveys" that don't arrive until after legislation is filed.
