ARDMORE, OK--People in Ardmore got a chance to get up close and personal with their Congressman today.
U.S Representative Tom Cole held at Town Hall meeting at the Ardmore Convention Center. A hot topic was the economy. Cole says it's not growing as fast as he'd like, but he believes things are headed in the right direction.
On the state level he says Oklahoma's economy is in a better place than most other states.
Cole says visiting Ardmore gives him the opportunity to know what's on the minds of his constituents.
"It's always great to be in Ardmore. My parents actually both grew up here, graduated from Ardmore High School. I spent all my summers here as a kid," Cole said.
Congressman Cole also took time out to salute the 30 U.S. troops killed in last weekend's attack in Afghanistan.
