CLARK COUNTY — JEFFERSONVILLE
Town Hall meeting postponed
State Sen. Ron Grooms, R-Jeffersonville, said Thursday a town hall meeting scheduled Saturday in the Jeffersonville City Council Chamber has been postponed.
Grooms said that State Rep. Steve Stemler had planned to join him at the meeting, but now cannot because of the death of his legislative assistant, Thelma Shaw. Stemler plans to attend Shaw’s funeral Saturday.
“We have decided to reschedule the meeting out of respect for Rep. Stemler and his legislative staff,” Grooms said. “We will let the public know the new date and time soon.”
Grooms reminded district residents they can always share opinions on legislative matters by e-mailing him at Senator.Grooms@iga.in.gov or by calling his office toll-free at 800-382-9467.
