Senator Colbeck Announces Coffee Hours in District

(Lansing, MI) – State Senator Patrick Colbeck (R-Canton) has scheduled a series of Coffee Hours to meet with local constituents and discuss issues facing our local communities and our state. The Coffee Hours are free and all residents are invited to come to the meeting nearest their home.

“We are facing difficult economic times in Michigan and there will be tough decisions that we’ll need to make in order to return opportunity and prosperity to our state and our residents. I encourage District residents to join me at one of these public meetings so that all voices can be heard and we can discuss some of the options before us.”

Due to budget cuts to the Legislature, Senator Colbeck does not have the funds to staff and maintain a district office as has been the practice of legislators in the past. Colbeck hopes that the Coffee Hours will provide residents another opportunity to meet with their state senator and share their thoughts or concerns.

“Technology has provided us with quick, easy ways to communicate and I encourage people to email, fax, or call my office or visit my website or Face Book page if they have an issue they would like to discuss,” Colbeck said. “However, I believe that it is just as important for people to have the opportunity to speak with their elected officials face to face and I look forward to meeting with many folks from around the District personally during these scheduled forums.”
