Kim town hall focuses more on ‘pocketbook’ issues than impeachment drama

BY Michael Aron, Chief Political Correspondent |

On Wednesday, Rep. Andy Kim held his 16th town hall since taking office last January. This one took place in Ocean Gate, a small town of 2,000 people located in Ocean County, that leans Republican. The first-term Democrat heard from constituents about so-called pocketbook issues, like high prescription drug prices, flooding and the health of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, not the status of the impeachment trial currently underway.
