Expanding Community Connections

Thanks to everyone who stopped by for my first Open Office Hours on the Road! We talked about everything from the Village noise ordinance, to immigration policy, keeping kids healthy, and reliable mail service. Special thanks to Virginia Benedict who snapped this pic of my conversation with Post Master Lorenzo Robinson. I’ll be scheduling another Open Office Hours on the Road event soon, and will let you know when the time and location are confirmed.
