Local residents are invited to a legislative listening session in Havre Wednesday, Sept. 27, at the Havre Eagles Club starting at 6 p.m.
Havre resident Andrea Melle will be opening the session, Montana House Appropriations Committee Vice Chair Mary Caferro, D-Helena, told Havre Daily News.
See an editorial by Melle on Page A4 of today’s edition of Havre Daily News.
Caffero and Rep. Paul Tuss, D-Havre, will be on hand to listen to the public in Havre. Caferro said it is a public event and all are welcome.
“Our priority is to hear from folks in rural Montana, take what we hear and write a public report to inform our work,” Caferro said. “We already have learned so much as Montanans give us suggestions, ask questions, and provide feedback. This leg of the tour we are visiting Havre and Lewistown.”
Caferro said the listening tour has been traveling around Montana, and so far they have visited Great Falls, Belgrade and Fort Peck and Poplar. This week week they had stops in Laurel and Red Lodge before coming to Lewistown and Havre next week, with stops also planned in Ravalli, Lake and Sanders counties.
“It is not a campaign event,” Caferro added. “We are sincerely here to listen.”
