While the impeachment of Donald Trump was at the top of mind at Gearhart’s congressional town hall Monday, U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici fielded questions about the federal deficit, foreign policy and her position on equal rights.

But overall it was the topic of civility that dominated evening, the fifth of sixth town hall events in the state.

“It is so important for us to have a conversation with those whom we disagree in a respectful way,” Bonamici said. “I don’t think that’s being very well modeled at the top. It’s unacceptable. We can all start modeling respectful behavior of each other.”
