tele-town hall
 n.— «The congressman was in his office in Washington; his constituents were in their homes. With the help of technology, though, Davis was able to chat with a large segment of the people he represents. Voters, in turn, were able to tell the congressman what was on their minds. The forum, known in political parlance as a “tele-town hall,” may seem a bit unusual. Davis and other members of Congress say it allows them to stay in touch with the people they represent even when their hectic work schedule makes a face-to-face meeting impossible.» —“Voters, Davis meet long distance” by Michael Collins in Washington, D.C. Kentucky Post (Covington, Kentucky) Mar. 22, 2007.
