INDIANAPOLIS - State Rep. Gail Riecken (D-Evansville) announced she will host three Town Hall meetings throughout her district on Saturday, August 16.
“I wanted to make the Town Hall meetings as convenient as possible, so I’ve scheduled separate times for three different locations on Saturday, Aug. 16,” said Riecken.
“I invite everyone to come and share with me any state government issues they may have, like problems with Medicaid, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, getting business permits, or concerns with any other state agency.
“I also would like to know if people believe our area residents have had the opportunity to gain sufficient training and skills to compete for good-paying jobs, what obstacles there are to getting new or better jobs, and what experience people have had with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development/WorkOne,” continued Riecken.
“In addition, I would like to know what local residents think Southwest Indiana can do to better encourage job growth and business investment. Do small businesses need more assistance or state incentives to expand and create additional jobs?
“Concerning education, what are the biggest challenges facing our students today? Are they ready to compete for the good-paying jobs of the future? If not, how can we improve their educational opportunities?” asked Riecken.
“These all are important issues and questions facing our community and state. That is why I need input from my constituents. These Town Hall meetings are for listening, seeking opinions and offering help.”

- 10:30 a.m. - 12 noon | McCollough Branch Library | 5115 Washington Ave.
