Pawling, NY — April 21, 2017   More than eighty people showed up in Pawling on Friday night to protest Representative John Faso’s continued refusal to hold open town halls.  While Representative Faso gathered with donors at a fundraiser inside O’Connor’s Public House, local Dutchess County residents were outside issuing him an invitation to meet in an open venue with his constituents.
