Proos holding tele-town hall meeting TONIGHT

LANSING—Sen. John Proos announced on Tuesday that he will be holding a tele-town hall meeting this evening to listen to residents’ priorities for the rest of the year.

This will be the latest in a series of tele-town halls Proos has held throughout his time in the state Legislature. More than 7,800 residents participated in the senator’s last tele-town hall in September 2013.

“Being an effective public servant begins with engaging the people about the many important issues facing our state and our families,” said Proos, R-St. Joseph. “The tele-town hall allows us to recap the year’s achievements, discuss priorities the remainder of this year and give residents a forum to express their viewpoints without having to leave home.

“I look forward to talking with residents tonight as part of my continued efforts to serve the hardworking people of Southwest Michigan to the best of my ability.”

Proos’ tele-town hall meeting will take place TONIGHT at 7:30 p.m. Residents wishing to participate may join the meeting by calling 877-228-2184 and entering ID Code 113349, or by submitting questions via Twitter by using #SWMITownhall.

Residents unable to participate in the tele-town hall may contact Proos’ office at any time by calling 1-517-373-6960 or by email at
