Update: Schweikert's foreclosure "prevention" event moved

Update to the update on 7/28 -

A call to Schweikert's office brought forth a statement that the event will be held in the Tempe library.  However, a call to the history museum brought forth a statement that their facility has been booked for the event on Saturday.

Advice:  plan to show up early (8:30 or 8:45 a.m.) and be prepared to move.  Fortunately, the Museum and Library are part of the same complex, so it won't be a long walk if one is necessary.

End 7/28 update...

...and there are rumors that it may have been moved again already, but this is the latest verifiable info...

Congressman "Foreclosure Dave" Schweikert is holding a foreclosure prevention workshop this coming Saturday, July 30.

Originally scheduled for the Pyle Center in Tempe, the latest information, courtesy the Arizona Foreclosure Prevention Task Force, is that it will now be held in the lower level of the Tempe Public Library.  The scheduled time is still 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

There was a rumor going around tonight that the event will actually be held at the Tempe History Museum, but while I will check it out tomorrow (by calling Schweikert's district office), I am going with the taxk force's info because it was uploaded to their Facebook page just a few hours ago.

Of course, Schweikert's Congressional website still shows the event location as the Pyle Center.

That's in keeping with an apparent nationwide pattern - Republican elected officials moving events or just generating confusion about them to reduce public attendance.  That way they can claim to have met with their constituents but can better control which constituents they meet with.

We'll see how Saturday turns out...
