The Town Hall with Senator Tom Cotton venue is still pending.
The meeting was first scheduled to take place at The Jones Center in Springdale on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Due to the high number of people to attend, the venue was changed to the Arend Arts Center at Bentonville High School.
On Monday, Bentonville Public Schools said the “tentatively” scheduled Town Hall with Cotton will not be at the Arend Arts Center due to “insufficient time to make arrangements for the visit.”
The statement from the school is below:
“It is the responsibility of Bentonville Public Schools to ensure the safety of students, staff, families, and visitors when in District facilities. After consulting with law enforcement, we determined that we would not be able to safely accommodate the number of people expected at this event and informed Senator Cotton’s office today.
Bentonville Public Schools has no additional information on where the meeting may be held.”
There is no word on where the Town Hall will be moved to.
