    Did you ever go to one? The officeholder usually holds anyone asking a question that is serious in contempt.  Look at the videos of McCain and others bullying everyone who has an alternate view.  They can never answer any questions even about bills they supposedly proposed or endorsed.  Their goal is to impart no information, and take no position except the official line.  The have been exceptions I guess.

    I once suggested that my rep allocate one day per term to ordinary people.  When the laughter of him and his staff stopped we knew the town meeting was a sham.  He got his TV appearance and fled the scene.  Sorry to be so cynical, but a reading of any of their logs will prove the point.
