Rothfus, R-Sewickley, had an open-floor conversation, answering everyone's questions and concerns openly.
Some of the concerns and questions voiced to the congressman, whose district includes Beaver and Allegheny counties, were healthcare, tax, and student loans.
Robert R Rosinsky, a self-employed CPA, said he was concerned about the way taxes are handled, which he said does not encourage people to make a lot of income.
Afterward, Rosinsky said he thought Rothfus was easy to approach.
When asked about the turnout of 18 people, Rosinsky said that Rothfus "has a good following in Beaver County and if people have something bad to say then that is when they show up. "
Powner agreed, adding that if someone has something to say they should attend these events rather than sit back and complain.
Student Anthony Kuntz of Economy said he was interested in politics and Andrew Broniszwski of New Sewickley Township came to thank Rothfus in person for a nomination he received from Rothfus's office for the service academy.
