Jim Harrison “Office Hours”
Or perhaps more aptly “dump and donuts” will take place at the following times and locations:
Saturday, September 21
8:30 – 10:30 am – Bridgewater Transfer Station
Saturday, September 28
8:30 – 10:30 am – Chittenden Transfer Station
Saturday, October 5
8:30 – 10:30 am – Killington Transfer Station
Thursday, September 26
9:00 – 11:00 am – Mendon Town Office
I encourage members of the district (Bridgewater, Chittenden, Killington and Mendon) to stop by during one of the times above to provide input on State issues of importance to you or just to say Hi. Feedback and suggestions to move Vermont forward are always welcome.
Vermont has a citizen legislature, with state representatives and senators being part time positions. Most have other occupations they work around or take a leave from when the legislature is in session from January to May or are otherwise retired from their careers. And unless they are the House Speaker or Senate Pro Tem, they do not have offices or personal staff.
A citizen legislature (in my view) helps to keep our elected representatives more accessible to the districts they represent. Fall is a good time to start planning for the upcoming session with the sharing of ideas and concerns. I hope you will stop by during one of the above “Office Hours” or email me at JHarrison@leg.state.vt.us.
