“I appreciate every opportunity to meet with the citizens of the district,” Sen. Kraus said. “Now that we have reached the mid-point of the current session, it is important to sit down with members of the community and discuss current events.”
There are two town hall meetings scheduled for next week. On Tuesday, March 13, Sen. Kraus and Rep. Sheila Solon will host a town hall at the Moreland Ridge Middle School Cafeteria, 900 SE Bishop Drive, Blue Springs, Mo. The legislators will be available from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to talk about current legislation and what is still to come this session.
The next evening, Wednesday, March 14, Sen. Kraus and State Reps.
