Janesville, WI – Tomorrow, Cathy Myers will attend the Town Hall for Our Lives in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which has been organized by local high school students as part of the nationwide March for Our Lives movement.

The event will take place at the UW-Parkside Student Center Cinema (900 Wood Rd) in Kenosha from 10 AM – Noon CT.

The student organizers sent a letter inviting Paul Ryan to attend the event last Friday, but did not receive a response. Ryan’s Democratic challengers, Cathy Myers and Randy Bryce, were also invited to the event on Friday and were invited to speak on Monday afternoon. Myers accepted, but Bryce declined despite chastising Speaker Ryan for avoiding town halls since last Summer.

Cathy Myers responded, “I’m excited to support these incredible student organizers who are leading this movement in our district. March for Our Lives has done more to enact commonsense gun safety laws in a few weeks than Paul Ryan has done over his two decades in Congress.”

“I’m disappointed that Paul Ryan and Randy Bryce are choosing to ignore the voices of students in Kenosha and hide from the tough questions that need to be answered by anyone who seeks to represent our community in Congress,” she continued.

Cathy Myers is a single mother of two, 24-year veteran high school teacher, and two-term elected official who has represented Paul Ryan on the Janesville School Board since 2013.
