U.S. Rep. Donna F. Edwards said she will work hard to revive the economy while holding recipients of government funds accountable as the nation struggles through the current recession during a town hall meeting Saturday.
"It is a really difficult time," said Edwards (D-Dist. 4) of Fort Washington during the 90-minute meeting at Silver Spring Library. "People are losing their homes, their jobs. They are unsure of their retirement – just generally struggling."
