Ingebrigtsen and Otremba to host town meeting in Osakis Friday

Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen and Representative Mary Ellen Otremba will continue their tradition of co-hosting town hall meetings and have scheduled four events throughout District 11B on Friday, March 19.

They will be at AJ's Restaurant in Osakis from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

The turnout for previous town hall meetings has been great and the legislators say it's helpful to have public input as they make their way through the current legislative session. Everyone is welcome to attend.

"We enjoy speaking face to face with local folks to get a real grass-roots feel of what's on people's minds," Ingebrigtsen said. "Area citizens seem to appreciate the chance to talk about what is most important to them; it doesn't matter how large or small the issue is."

Regardless of the topic, these town meetings provide a casual setting. If you are unable to attend any of the town meetings below or would like to discuss legislative issues, call Sen. Ingebrigtsen at (651) 297-8063 or e-mail

Representative Otremba may be reached at (651) 296-3201 or at
