DallasNews.com Hosts "A Tornado Town Hall" on Jan. 16, 2016

Come to this free public event — “A Tornado Town Hall: How to Hire the Best People to Help You Put Your Life Back Together” at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Plaza Theatre in Garland.

Sponsored by DallasNews.com and The Dallas Morning News, the free event will be led by The News’ Watchdog columnist, Dave Lieber. He’ll share the latest strategies anyone can use to find the best contractors, roofers and other service workers.

Families affected by the Dec. 26 tornadoes are invited, as is anyone else in the community interested in learning the latest watchdog survival skills. Dave has made more than a 100 similar presentations across Texas as part of his consumer rights “Watchdog Nation” campaign in which he shows Americans how to be super-smart consumers.

Participants will take home a “cheat sheet” filled with ideas and a checklist to research companies and individuals.
