WILLIAMSPORT -- Facing questions about illegal immigration, Social Security and the 14th Amendment, U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett held a town hall meeting in Williamsport on Monday. About 30 people, including some Bartlett staffers, were in the audience at the Community Building at Byron Memorial Park. Bartlett, R-Md., is scheduled to hold two more town hall meetings this week -- today in Cumberland and Wednesday in Frederick. The calm, respectful tone was a sharp contrast to a local health care town hall meeting a year earlier, when more than 400 people crowded into a Hagerstown Community College auditorium, some shouting at U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin.
