Madison, WI – Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) announces a series of Listening Sessions for residents of the 17th Senate District:
Monday, February 7 – Sen. Howard Marklein (17th) and Rep. Todd Novak (51st)
10:00-11:00 am Village of Rewey Fire Department

Monday, February 21 – Sen. Howard Marklein (17th), Reps. Travis Tranel (49th) and Tony Kurtz (50th)
11:00 am-12:00 pm Village of Boaz Community Center Building
The format for the Listening Sessions is designed for the legislators to receive input and ideas about issues facing residents in the 17th Senate District. The legislators do not plan to answer questions, debate ideas, challenge the ideas or otherwise comment because they seek to hear every point-of-view equally. The goal is for every attendee to feel comfortable sharing their input.
Depending on the number of people who attend, the session moderator may set a time limit for each attendee to share their thoughts (2-3 minutes) so that everyone has a chance to speak. If there are only a few people, the session may be more casual.
Constituents are welcome to attend to listen to others and submit written ideas, however, facility capacity limitation may impact audience observation. As always, all constituents are invited to call, email or write to the legislators at any time to share thoughts, ideas and concerns.
There are also separate Facebook events on Senator Marklein’s official Facebook page. These Facebook events can be viewed at www.facebook.com/SenMarklein. In the case of inclement weather, please visit Senator Marklein’s website, Facebook page or call 608-266-0703 to determine if the Listening Session will be held.
