Legislators have budget on their minds

(Continued)

GEORGETOWN —

Grooms prefers town-hall events over phone calls or emails because he can better understand the concerns behind constituents’ questions and provide more satisfactory responses.

Clere called town hall meetings “the essence of representative democracy.” He said he enjoys the public interaction and always leaves with a better understanding of the concerns of his electorate.

“I truly value the participation of the discussion and I take a lot back with me to the state house,” Clere said.

He said more than 600 bills from both state houses have been introduced during the current session, and that hearing personally from people during town hall meetings helps him serve their needs while reviewing bills on their long journeys to becoming laws.

“It is essential for the folks we seek to represent to have access to us in this type of setting where we can have an open conversation about issues important to people in the community,” Clere said.
