Neil L. Durrance, Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress District 26 , is launching a listening tour to give citizens an opportunity to express their messages to him as he ramps up his campaign.
Durrance will appear at the Café de Luxe at 3101 Unicorn Lake Boulevard in Denton on April 6 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for coffee and open discussion with the citizens of Denton.
“People have become disillusioned by the present Congress. Congress has stalled legislation with endless bickering, and they are constantly making back room deals and ignoring the voice of the American people. My campaign seeks to return government to the people, away from special interests, and to remind North Texans that they have a voice and a choice in leadership,” said Durrance.
Durrance will briefly present his stance on key national issues and then open the floor for open discussion and debate about the issues important to those who attend the event.
A practicing attorney and Denton resident for over 25 years, Durrance completed an unexpired term on the Denton City Council in 1996 before being electing to two terms of his own. He served as chairman of the Denton County Democratic Party from 2007 to 2009, before announcing his bid for Congress.
Durrance is attempting to unseat Republican Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D., who was first elected to Congress in 2002, and re-elected three times since.
Texas’ 26th District includes most of Denton County as well as large portions of Tarrant and Cooke Counties and a sliver of Dallas County.
