Local lawmakers to convene with public

Legislators to hold town hall meetings

Express Staff Writer

District 25 legislators are once again preparing to meet their public during a series of mid-session town hall meetings next weekend.

Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, will be joined by Rep. Donna Pence, D-Gooding, and Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, on a whirlwind two-day tour of the district Jan. 27-28.

The legislators will hold six sessions from Ketchum to Hagerman, open public meetings where constituents are urged to meet the lawmakers, learn more detail about specific legislation passed last year and ask questions about the bills, budget and plans for this year's session.

The first meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 27, at the Roosevelt Grill on Main Street in Ketchum. Jaquet, Pence and Stennett will spend all day visiting constituents on Saturday, beginning with a breakfast town hall meeting at 8 a.m. at the Oak Street Deli on Main Street in Bellevue.


Other meetings will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the Coffee House in North Shoshone, 12:15 p.m. at Zeppe's Pizza and Subs in Gooding, 2 p.m. at Wendell City Hall and 4 p.m. at the Hagerman City Hall.

Stennett is a member of the Senate Commerce and Human Resources, Resources and Environment, and State Affairs committees.

The two representatives are members of the House Environment, Energy and Technology; Judiciary; Rules and Administration; Joint Finance and Appropriations; Agricultural Affairs; Education and Resources and Conservation committees.
