Opioids, tax reform, but no GenX on agenda for meeting between Rouzer and locals

WILMINGTON — Local officials are set to meet Monday with Congressman David Rouzer about items related to federal policies.

The New Hanover County Board of Commissioners, along with local mayors and sheriffs, have been invited to meet Monday at 1 p.m. with Rouzer at the New Hanover County Government Center.

According to a press release from Rouzer’s office, the meeting is to continue his practice of meeting with local leaders to discuss federal issues that are impacting the area, and to “ensure an open dialogue on all matters of importance to the citizens of the 7th district.”

Some of the issues Rouzer intends to discuss, “include coastal issues, such as dredging and coastal storm damage reduction, the opioid crisis, tax reform, updates on other legislative items of interest, and any other topics elected officials wish to discuss.  Though GenX is on the mind of every elected official, there is no new information for Congressman Rouzer to present that hasn’t already been publicly reported,” the release states.

The meeting is by invitation only and not open to the public.

“As typical with meetings involving local, elected leaders, this meeting is invite only,” the release states. “Members of the press are invited to observe the meeting to report on topics discussed should they wish to do so.”
