MAYFLOWER, AR- Every thirty days Mayflower citizens meet for a town hall style meeting.
Those who have been around the oil since day one are voicing concerns now on day 122.
A person at the meeting quietly taking notes happens to be a representative from Congressman Tim Griffin
"I think it's a very responsible move for them," said resident Genieve Long.
Hand made signs they made, ask local politicians to take an interest in their concerns.
"We have been trying desperately to get any kind of government agency here to listen to us and see what we are seeing," said Long.
While Griffin's camp wouldn't speak on camera, the congressman released a statement:
"Today's meeting was another opportunity to hear the concerns of constituents and look for ways to help them recover from this disaster. these families didn't ask for this spill, and i'll continue to make sure they're treated fairly and made whole," the release said.
The activists said with this new attention comes more wind in their sails.
"That's why we work so hard to put out this information for people that are afraid to stick their necks out and give info they've seen," said Long.
