One of the best parts about being a senator is the opportunity to hear from constituents. Whether you have an idea for a law, a concern about a Missouri agency, a question about your state government, or just want to talk politics, I look forward to hearing from you.
For the last year we have met every Friday morning from 9-10 for "Coffee Break w/ Senator Justus." Unfortunately, our wonderful location for last year's meetings has closed its doors for good, but we have found a new home at Oak Street Coffee, 6221 Oak Street. Every Friday I provide a Jefferson City update, talk politics, answer your questions and enjoy some great coffee. It's also a great opportunity to promote an event/organization and meet your neighbors.
For those who are not able to break away from work or other duties on Friday mornings, I'm adding some new options to meet up and make your voice heard. The first opportunity is a Saturday Listening Post. The third Saturday of every month, I will hang out at a local coffee shop or diner and you can drop in for a quick question/concern or just to chat for a bit. The first Saturday Listening Post is this Saturday from 9-11 at One More Cup at 7408 Wornall in Waldo. Future Saturday Listening Posts will be held around town to make it convenient for people throughout the 10th District.
Since it's easier for some folks to break away over the lunch hour, I'm also adding a Brownbag Lunch Series on the last Friday of every month. This meeting is from 12:00-1:30 at the MainCor office, 3215 Main Street, Ste 200. I'll provide some water, soft drinks and cookies. You bring a lunch, questions and concerns. This will be a chance to hold longer discussions about specific issues and we'll have some special guests to help us tackle some of KC's biggest problems.
Before you set out to attend one of our meetings, make sure to check out my Facebook page or Twitter feed to make sure we don't have any last minute cancellations or location changes. I look forward to seeing you around town soon!
