UPDATE: Congressional Candidate Holds Forum at Oxford Business

Meek meets with residents at popular diner.

UPDATE: We took the opportunity to meet with Mr. Meek at Fritz's on Friday morning. We asked him questions about why he's running and what he hopes to accomplish if elected. We plan to post this article within the next few days. Thanks - Paul Singley, Oxford Patch editor

Congressional candidate Chris Meek, a Republican who is running for the fourth-district seat against incumbent Democrat Jim Himes, held a meet and greet session with local voters on Friday.

Meek held "Coffee with Chris" at 10 a.m. Friday at Fritz's Snack Bar diner, 72 Oxford Road, or Route 67.

The schedule for the other coffee events is as follows:

  • in Oxford Friday, Feb. 10 at 10 a.m.
  • Glory Days Cafe in Greenwich Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m.
  • The Lunch Box in Weston Friday, February 17 at 10 a.m.

“I think it's important that your congressman not just be some guy behind a desk who gives speeches or waves at community events," Meek stated in a news release. "Your congressman needs to be someone you know, someone who shares your hopes, dreams and fears – a real person that you can talk to about our community. I've met so many people through the years through my various non-profit endeavors and heard many great ideas. As a candidate, I think it's critical for anyone who wants to, to be able to share their ideas with me and learn about mine.”

Interesting, thought Fritz's stayed out of the political arena? No flyers were allowed to be hung, meet and greets, etc. were never allowed there, what has changed?

So will he be at Fritz's at 10 am on Tuesday Feb 7 or Fri Feb 10? Must be Friday which is stated twice for Oxford, while Feb 7 is stated twice for 2 different towns.

It's the 10th. Thanks for pointing it out.
