CENTERBURG — Ken Harbaugh, candidate for the OH-7 congressional district, will host a Country Over Party Town Hall at the American Veterans (AMVets) Post 59 in Centerburg, Sunday at 2 p.m.

The Harbaugh Campaign has put out an open invitation to residents of Knox County and all are invited to participate in this open forum of conversation.

This upcoming Town Hall meeting will be the 11th major public and open to the press event Harbaugh has held in recent months. Harbaugh frequently cites the disfunction in Washington as the primary motivator in his bid for the Congressional Campaign. The Centerburg Town Hall will take place about 50 miles from the office of Harbaugh’s opponent, where recently members of the press were explicitly barred from a June meeting between activists and Congressman Gibbs’ staff.

Harbaugh has long valued country over party and is disappointed by the division in our nation’s capital.

“Washington is broken,” Harbaugh said. “All of us, no matter who we voted for in the last election, send our representatives there to work on our behalf, to solve problems, and get the job done. Our current Congress has failed to do that.”

To change this culture, Harbaugh’s team is knocking on thousands of doors in the OH-7 to learn how best to serve local communities Harbaugh’s desire to hear the needs of so many individuals is closely intertwined with his vision of public service: “When we put country over party and service before ourselves, we can build a better Ohio.”

Harbaugh, a former Navy pilot and veteran of the nonprofit sector, has received attention in recent months for his service-minded approach to politics, his strong sense of civic responsibility, and his willingness to fight for all Americans—characteristics that have resonated with Ohioans of all backgrounds.
