This coming Saturday, Rep. Bob Gardner is partnering with Sen. Kent Lambert, both Republicans, to host a town hall to discuss the current session of the state Legislature.
You know, catch up faithful citizens on what bills have passed, what bills have been killed, what they're hoping to still accomplish, and what budgetary challenges still face the state — those sorts of things.
It's a good time for some reflection and discussion as the Legislature has passed the halfway mark, with the Long Bill still to be hammered out.
The town hall will be held at Sen. Keith King's charter school, Colorado Springs Early Colleges, at 4435 N. Chestnut St. If you've never been to the school, just look for the Colorado Technical University as the school is located on that property.
The meeting begins at 2:00 p.m.
