Also, Blue Springs City Council members Ron Fowler and Grant Bowerman will be on hand to address any questions or concerns regarding local government.

These town hall meetings are important to me because they afford me the opportunity to interact straight with the constituents of the 8th Senatorial District,” said Sen. Kraus. “It is a vital way to keep members of the local community up to date on activities within the Capitol and upcoming issues and events. I look forward to speaking with concerned citizens and addressing any questions they might have.
