Byrnes hosting community forum Nov. 18 in A2

State Rep. Pam Byrnes, D-52nd District, will be holding a community forum in Ann Arbor. We encourage local residents to take advantage of the opportunity and share their voices on a variety of topics. Here's the press release that just came in:

ANN ARBOR – Speaker Pro Tempore Pam Byrnes (D-Lyndon Township) is hosting a community forum to hear from residents about issues like government reform, budget cuts and funding key priorities like education. Byrnes will be hosting the event on Wednesday, Nov. 18 in Ann Arbor.

"We're going through difficult times here in Michigan, and I want input from our residents on what they want to see from state government moving forward," Byrnes said. "In order to turn around our state and create jobs, we're facing some very tough decisions about how to stretch taxpayer dollars to fund priorities such as education. I invite people from around Washtenaw County to come and share their views with me."

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Vogel Rooms A and B at the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, located at 1819 S. Wagner Road in Ann Arbor.
