Letter: District 42 town hall meeting Feb. 9

To the Editor:

I am pleased to announce District 42’s first legislative town hall meeting of the 2012 session. This will be a joint meeting with Reps. Barb Yarusso (42A, DFL-Shoreview) and Jason Isaacson (42B, DFL-Shoreview) on Saturday, Feb. 9.

Yarusso and I will meet with residents 9-10:15 a.m. Then, Rep. Isaacson will join me from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. to talk with constituents. Both meetings are at the Shoreview City Council Chamber (4600 Victoria Street N.).

To help us prepare for the Feb. 9 meeting, we invite you to take a quick survey asking about the issues most important to you and your family. To access the questionnaire you can visit my webpage “In Touch with Senator Scalze” by accessing my profile at senate.mn/senatorscalze.

Town hall meetings are an excellent opportunity for residents to hear about and discuss the important issues their legislators are addressing at the Capitol. I anticipate an educational and thoughtful discussion with the folks of District 42. We are doing a lot of work at the Capitol this session and I want to keep the lines of communication with people back home as open as possible.

If you cannot attend the town hall meeting, but are interested in legislative activities, please contact me via email at: [email protected] or call my office at 651-296-5537.

I look forward to our conversation on Feb. 9.
