Rep. Mike Coffman will take questions from constituents at a telephone town hall next week. He also will hold an in-person town hall event in April, according to his office.

The first telephonic event will be on March 15 at 6 p.m., with reservations available online. The date of the in-person event hasn’t been announced yet.

Coffman, like Republicans across the country, has heard demands that he face constituents directly and answer questions about proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act. (Read our analysis of some potential impacts in Colorado.)

In January, national news outlets picked up on reporting about the unhappy crowd that gathered to meet Coffman at an event in Aurora. He reportedly left early, and later said that the meeting had been swamped with “partisan activists.” Since then, he’s hosted a “listening tour” that has taken him to health organizations and other groups around his district, which covers Aurora and other parts of the eastern Denver metro, and beyond.

Sen. Cory Gardner also has hosted two similar events.
