State Sen. Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) announced that she will be holding in-district office hours from 4-5 p.m. July 22 in the commons area at the Viroqua High School, 100 Blackhawk Drive.
Members of the public are invited to sit down with Sen. Shilling and discuss their thoughts or concerns regarding legislation or any state government issues.
"Meeting with community members face-to-face and keeping in touch with local residents helps me to best represent our shared values in the legislature," said Shilling. "I am always available to help, and these local meetings are one more way for citizens to share their thoughts with me."
If individuals are unable to attend the scheduled office hours, they can contact Shilling anytime via email at Sen.Shilling@legis.wi.gov or by phone at 1-800-385-3385.
Prior to the office hours event, Shilling will be joined by Superintendent Robert Knadle and Principal Kathy Klos to present a legislative award to Brigetta Rodriguez who graduated from Viroqua High School this year. Rodriguez was recently recognized for her leadership and academic performance as the 2014 Student Readiness Award recipient by the ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign and will be attending Vassar College in the fall.
