Congressman Price invited me to listen in to one of his townhall calls yesterday on my lunch break. It’s quite impressive technology that the GOP is harnessing.
Basically, an autocall goes out to the district giving a toll free number and password. The people can get on the call if they are interested and hear Congressman Price. The people can que up and ask questions that everyone can hear. The congressman has the option of cutting off rude callers and can end the call when his time is up.
The call quality was impressive. People asked a lot of good questions to the congressman. He handled them well and showed he knows his stuff when hit comes to healthcare.
These calls are going to become more and more common. It’s good to see one of Georgia’s own being one of the very first to take advantage of this new technology.
