The national call for more congressional town hall meetings is getting louder. 

While neighbors in the Southern Tier aired their concerns on issues like, heath care and immigration at a recent town hall meeting hosted by Congressman Tom Reed, others are still rallying for Congressman Chris Collins to do the same. 

Despite their common party affiliation, Reed and Collins differ when it comes to communication style. 

Reed says he enjoys the open dynamic of town hall meetings, while Collins says he prefers a smaller more contained forum, thus it being unlikely he will ever call for a town hall meeting.

A rally is scheduled on Monday, February 20th at 3:15p.m. outside of Chris Collins' office.
