Sen. Sanders to host town hall meetings on income inequality

Posted: Updated:
VERMONT -

Senator Bernie Sanders is preparing a high-tech talk with his constituents.

This Sunday he'll host four town hall meetings at the same time.

Vermonters are invited to attend in Bennington, Brattleboro, Middlebury and St. Johnsbury. Sanders plans to share a documentary on income and wealth inequality, and then bring the groups together for conversation via video conference.

"What's going on is about 95 percent of all of the new income generated in this country goes to the top 1 percent and the gap between the very, very rich and everybody else is growing wider and this is an issue we have to discuss and we have to resolve," he says.

The town hall meetings start at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at these locations:

Bennington:

Mt Anthony High School Auditorium, 301 Park St. Bennington, Vt.

Brattleboro:

Brattleboro Union High School Auditorium, 131 Fairground Rd. Brattleboro, Vt.

Middlebury:

Middlebury Union High School Auditorium, 73 Charles Ave. Middlebury, Vt.

St. Johnsbury:

Fuller Hall, St. Johnsbury Academy 1000 Main St. St. Johnsbury, Vt.
