Town Hall This Saturday, Education on Tap
Our next town hall meeting will be held this Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. until noon, in the Boulder City Council Chambers, 1777 Broadway. Dr. Bruce Messinger, Superintendent of the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD, pictured at left), will be our featured guest speaker. Education will naturally be one of the main topics Saturday, and it's timely since the General Assembly is about to begin formal deliberations on Senate Bill 13-213, the Public School Finance Act. The bill, if adopted, would lead to a major update in the state's system of school finance. It's a voluminous bill, and we expect people with an interest in K-12 education to have comments or questions. Dr. Messinger and I have both spent many hours on the bill process, and we're looking forward to discussing the bill with the residents of BVSD and Senate District 18.
While education will be a major meeting topic, the 2013 legislative session is basically at its midway point and we have a lot to talk about. We've introduced or discussed bills pertaining to topics such as jobs and the economy, transportation, public safety, the environment and energy, natural resources and more. We'll have informed speakers and handouts at the meeting, but part of the legislative process is listening to input from our consituents. Saturday's meeting is free and open to the public, and I'm hoping to see you there!
