Town meeting planned in Brandon
The Brandon city clerk and the Brandon Township clerk have arranged for a town meeting with local legislators Senator Torrey Westrom and Representative Jay McNamar on Wednesday, July 10 at 10 a.m. at Brandon City Hall.
The focus of this town meeting is to promote awareness of the legislation passed this session and how it will affect local jurisdictions (legislation about education funding, sales tax relief, LGA funding, etc.)
Information on the legislative process and the work that public officials do will help develop a respect for state government, according to organizers.
The legislators will be invited to speak about their experience, comment on the bills passed, rejected, or not considered, after which questions or responses from the public will be sought.
The interaction between the legislators and the public can provide recommendations for next year's legislative session.
