Viewers' questions addressed in economy town hall

Last night, News 12 held an interactive town hall meeting regarding the financial crisis and how it is affecting local residents.

Viewers' thoughts, questions and concerns were collected and directed to a panel of experts to get some answers and piece of mind.

The experts fielded tough questions about unemployment, credit card debt, how to avoid foreclosure and gave tips on how to start a small business.

Many residents who participated by approaching News 12 reporters in the field, as well as via phone and Facebook, say they were impressed with the amount of information offered.
