Rep. Swalwell hosting community forum on gun violence and domestic terrorism

District residents invited to share thoughts, concerns at Wednesday night event in Hayward

Tri-Valley Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Livermore) is hosting a community forum on Wednesday evening in the city of Hayward to address ending gun violence and domestic terrorism.

“Following the massacres at Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, and as our cities reel from gun violence day after day, it’s time to discuss the action that’s needed to save American lives,” Swalwell said in a statement. “I want to update my 15th Congressional District friends and neighbors on what local and federal law enforcement, national stakeholders, and Congress are doing, and I want to hear from residents about their concerns and wishes.”

Wednesday's forum starts 6:30 p.m. in downtown Hayward at the Hayward City Council Chambers, 777 B St., and is free and open to all 15th Congressional District residents. The 15th Congressional District includes San Ramon, Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Hayward, Union City, parts of Fremont and Danville, and the unincorporated Alameda County communities of Sunol, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Cherryland, Ashland and Fairview.

Swalwell is a joke. Looking forward to voting him out of office.

So the liar, Rep. Swalwell, is hosting a community forum on gun violence and domestic terrorism. What qualifies this brainless twit to host anything? Well, other than how to lie... I guess.

According to a recent story in the San Jose Mercury News Eric Swalwell had the highest truancy rate of any congressperson running for President, missing 39.7 percent of votes this year. Instead of being in D.C. and doing what he was elected to do, representing his constituents by voting, he was constantly AWOL, spending his time promoting himself.

He also is living way beyond his means, running up over $60,000 in credit card debt. He claims to be a "family man", which is true if that means having more than one family, as he is already on his second marriage.

He also lost all credibility by claiming that President Trump was actually "an agent of Russia".

Please vote for ANY Democrat running against him in this election, as it is time we have a representative who does his job and puts his constituents interest over his own giant ego.
