ARLINGTON -- Republican Rep. Joe Barton of Texas represents the majority of Arlington, the nation’s 50th largest city with a population of 380,000 residents.

While congressional town halls have drawn big crowds around the country in recent weeks, Barton is hosting two town halls on Saturday an hour away from Arlington in towns with populations of less than 800 people.

The longest-serving member of Texas’ delegation will host two town hall events on March 11. The first is set for 11 a.m. at the Frost ISD Performing Arts Center in Frost, Texas. The second is set for the Milford Senior Center at 1 p.m in Milford, Texas.
