Jauch and Smith to Meet with Barron County Leaders on February 15 and 16
MADISON –State Senator Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) and Representative Stephen Smith (D-Shell Lake) have announced a series of community roundtables with local government, school district, and economic development officials in Barron County on Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16. The roundtables will provide the Northern Lawmakers an opportunity to discuss issues important to Barron County as the new legislative session gets underway. The public is encouraged to attend these informal, open-dialogue discussions. The lawmakers are looking forward to meeting with constituents and learning more about the issues facing them. “With the Governor planning on announcing his state budget on February 20th and a number of important pieces of legislation already introduced, this is a good time to sit down local leaders and hear their thoughts on the upcoming legislation session,” said Jauch. The meetings will also provide newly elected Representative Stephen Smith an opportunity to meet with constituents and local leaders from the 75th Assembly District. “A democracy fails when its citizens do not become involved. Please share your ideas and concerns for Wisconsin with us at these listening sessions,” added Smith. “My door is always open and I want to hear from you.” Friday, February 15 Meeting with Cumberland Local Officials 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Cumberland City Hall Cumberland Meeting with Clear Lake Local Officials 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Clear Lake Village Office Clear Lake Saturday, February 16 Meeting with Prairie Farm Local Officials 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Prairie Farm High School Prairie Farm Meeting with Chetek Local Officials 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Chetek Community Center Chetek ###
