Staff for U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming will hold remote office hours in Sheridan on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 to meet with constituents. Field Representative Jackie King will be available to meet with residents and hear ideas, comments and concerns about what is happening in the U.S. Senate, and also to help anyone having trouble working with a federal agency.
Of the remote office hours, Sen. Lummis said:
“We are working every day to make the federal government works for the people of Wyoming. Whether that is through legislation like the POWER Act to protect Wyoming energy producers, or through the Financial Innovation Caucus to show my Senate colleagues how Wyoming has pioneered digital asset regulation, I am working to best represent and defend the Wyoming way of doing things. These remote office hours will bring my office closer to the people we are here to serve, and I hope they will foster good conversations and also provide necessary help to ensure that the people of Wyoming can better navigate the complexities of the federal government.”
To schedule a meeting with Jackie King, please call (307) 261-6575 to arrange a convenient time and location during her visit.
In addition to establishing remote office hours, Sen. Lummis created a new business-focused state position, the director of business outreach, and hired Cheyenne native Brendan Ames to serve in that position as a liaison between the federal government and Wyoming businesses.
So we serfs have to schedule a meeting with the lords representative in order to air our concerns? 😕 What ever happened to open forums, or town halls, where groups of people could meet with an elected official to talk and listen? Are they afraid of we the people?
