If you have questions for your state representatives, particularly along the lines of issues that affect everyday people such as housing, the local economy, transit, education, human services, and racial equality, then Monday’s 4th Annual Legislative Forum would be a good place to start getting answers.

The Washtenaw County Office of Community & Economic Development (OCED) will host the forum on Monday, May 22 from 6 through 8 p.m. at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center Auditorium.

Scheduled speakers include Senator Rebekah Warren (District 18), as well as Representatives Donna Lasinski (District 52), Yousef Rabhi (District 53), Ronnie Peterson (District 54), and Adam Zemke (District 55). According to forum organizers, more local politicians could join the panel in the interim time.

Michael J. Miller, Chief Mission Officer for St. Joseph Mercy Health System – Ann Arbor, will moderate the panel discussion.

“We are so proud to be hosting our 4th installment of this legislative forum,” said Andrea Plevek, Director, Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development. “Providing a public space where residents can directly interact with their elected officials is critical to creating informed policies and programs that help rebuild local economies, create jobs and improve quality of life across the county.”

The forum is free and open to the public.

Community members interested in attending can RSVP at https://ocedforum.eventbrite.com/

The Legislative Forum is co-sponsored by Eastern Michigan University.
