In a joint statement, the lawmakers said, “We hope our constituents will take advantage of these community meetings to learn more about and contribute to this year’s challenges and debates over taxes, regulations, mandates, economic development, health care, education, and other key issues. Community meetings offer the kind of direct give and take that’s fundamental to effective government.”

They said that the meetings, which began this fall throughout the region, are informal and open to the public to give local residents an opportunity to directly share their concerns, opinions and suggestions for better government.
