Local legislative town halls coming on August 20 in local tri-county area
August 19, 2021
Senator Torrey Westrom, Representatives Jeff Backer, and Paul Anderson welcome voters to eight upcoming town hall meetings - one in each county of District 12 on August 19 and 20. The legislators will review the 2021 session and answer questions regarding ending Governor Walz's emergency powers, the overall COVID-19 response in the state of Minnesota, and discuss other legislative topics and concerns of local constituents. Representative Backer will join Senator Westrom for District 12A meetings and Representative Anderson will join the meetings for District 12B. The legislators are looking forward to doing these town halls in person, unlike last year due to COVID-19. The meetings are open to the public, and residents of Senate District 12 are encouraged to attend and have face-to-face conversations with their legislators.
