EAST ALTON — State Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, is going to be starting off the New Year by hosting satellite office hours in East Alton from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, at East Alton Village Hall, 119 W. Main St.
“Satellite office hours are a great opportunity for folks to stop by and speak with me and my staff one-on-one about any ideas, concerns or opinions they have,” Beiser said. “Also, since the new legislative session is beginning in January, I encourage area residents to bring any new ideas they may have for legislation.”
Satellite office hours provide residents of the Riverbend region easier accessibility to Beiser and his staff because not everyone may be able to get to his constituent service office in Alton. Residents are encouraged to attend to discuss issues that are important to them or to gain access to state-related services.
“Satellite office hours are extremely beneficial not only constituents, but to me also,” Beiser said. “Discussing important issues facing our state with my constituents, and hearing their perspective and opinions on different matters helps me to do my job more effectively. I have seen a lot of good come from satellite office hours over the past few months, and I plan to continue making my office more accessible by holding satellite office hours throughout the region.”
For information, contact Beiser’s constituent services office at (618) 465-5900.
