Burr Announces Visits Over President's Day Recess

Senator Richard Burr will spend the President's Day recess visiting towns throughout Eastern North Carolina. The events will provide Burr the opportunity to meet with a wide range of North Carolinians by visiting schools, military installations and civic groups.

"I'm looking forward to spending time in Eastern North Carolina and listening to people's concerns about jobs, health care and education," said Burr. "Visiting Cherry Point Marine Base and Pope Air Force Base will help me gain further perspective on the sacrifices we've asked our men and women in uniform to make and the equipment we send them to battle with."

Any media wishing to cover one or more of Senator Burr's visits MUST contact the host site or organization prior to the event. The visits to the Marine Base at Cherry Point and Pope Air Force Base are CLOSED to the press. Please contact Senator Burr's office to schedule separate interviews.
