Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach Campaign Brings National Town Hall Tour to Boston
Steyer to discuss Donald Trump’s offenses against the nation and demand that local elected officials support Rep. Al Green’s impeachment resolution
(BOSTON, July 3, 2018)—Need to Impeach founder Tom Steyer is bringing the case to remove Donald Trump from office to Massachusetts, where he will host a town hall—part of his nationwide, 30-stop town hall series—in Boston on Tuesday, July 10.
Since launching the town hall series earlier this year, Steyer has hosted town halls in New York City; Philadelphia; Columbus, Ohio; Cincinnati; Washington, D.C., Largo, Md.; Arlington, Va; Oakland, Calif.; Sacramento, Calif.; Atlanta; Orlando, Fla.; Des Moines, Iowa; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Denver, Colo.; Charlotte, N.C.; Columbia, S.C.; Minneapolis; Seattle; Omaha, Neb.; and Salt Lake City, Utah. At the event, Steyer will make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans about the need to impeach Trump, and question why elected leaders in Massachusetts and across the country are ignoring the clear call to action from their constituents.
According to a Quinnipiac poll, more than 70 percent of Democrats support impeaching Trump, yet four of the nine Democratic members of Congress representing Massachusetts—Richard Neal (Springfield), Niki Tsongas (Lowell), Stephen Lynch (Boston), and William Keating (Bourne)—voted against moving forward with Rep. Al Green’s impeachment resolution earlier this year. The Representatives who voted in favor of the resolution were Jim McGovern (Worcester), Katherine Clark (Melrose), Seth Moulton (Salem), and Mike Capuano (Somerville). Representative Joe Kennedy III (Brookline) did not vote.
“From California to Florida, Americans across the country are outraged by Donald Trump’s lawlessness and are demanding his removal from power,” said Steyer. “At every single town hall that we have held, we hear directly from American patriots who are frustrated with this administration and the lack of leadership from members of Congress who are overlooking the will of voters who put them in office. Their time to act is now. American voters demand it.”
Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017, through national television and social media ads. More than 5.4 million people have since signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic Party. So far, 13 national commercials—including two in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than 2 billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
