AUGUSTA — The delegation representing the Town of Union in the Maine State Legislature will hold an in-person constituent event on the Union town common.
State Representative Bill Pluecker, Senator David Miramant and Representative Jeffrey Evangelos will provide an update of the work that is being done in Augusta and have a discussion about legislation being proposed this session.
The event will be held at the gazebo in the town common Saturday, April 3 from 10 a.m. to noon.
The legislators believe it is important for in-person meetings to give constituents who want to be able to have a conversation with their legislator, but are unable to connect to video meetings that have helped them stay connected with the people they represent during the health pandemic, a news release stated.
“Meeting with folks in the community is one of the greatest rewards of being a legislator,” said Sen. Miramant, who represents all of Knox County except for the town of Washington. “I have missed it over the past year and can’t wait to see everyone!”
“It's so important that we hear from our constituents as we pull ourselves out of the pandemic and financial stress of the past year,” commented Rep. Pluecker, who represents Appleton, Hope, the eastern half of Union and Warren. “We cannot move forward as a state without the voice of those most impacted by these crises being heard in Augusta. Please take the time to speak to me in person or get in touch by phone or email, so that I know I am doing all that I can for the people of this district.”
“I'm really looking forward to getting outdoors, getting off Zoom, and greeting the people I serve,” stated Rep. Evangelos, who Friendship, the western half of Union, Waldoboro and Washington.
All state and local requirements, including social distancing and the wearing of facial coverings, will be asked of attendees to ensure the health and safety of other attendees of the meeting.
If anyone wishing to attend has a problem or issue with a government agency or department, please bring all necessary documentation for staff to help facilitate an answer.
