The Vanderburgh County Tea Party is planning to hold a peaceful protest along with Freedomworks on Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard.
The groups say they're disappointed that Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon refuses to hold town hall meetings to discuss issues they say face all Hoosiers.
A representative for Bucshon, however, says the Congressman has been making himself available to the public, noting just last week, town hall events were held in Clay City and Spencer. The spokesperson also says the Congressman Bucshon has been meeting with a number of community groups, businesses, and constituents to discuss issues and answer questions. He also says the Congressman has held open office hours in Evansville, Terre Haute and Jasper since returning to the district earlier this month.
Friday's protest is scheduled for noon.
