For those of you who are interested in meeting or asking questions of U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, mark your calendar. He will be holding one of his occasional Town Hall Meetings in the area.

The meeting will be held on Thursday morning, July 7 at 11:30 AM in room 413 of the Neil Combee County Administration Building, 330 West Church Street in Bartow (map). That's directly across from the Polk County Courthouse.

Senator Nelson occasionally holds Town Hall Meetings across Florida as a chance to inform his constitutents about important issues of direct impact being considered in the U.S. Congress, and for people to be able to ask questions about issues. At many of these events he is accompanied by members of his district staff, who are able to assist with specific questions or issues.

For more information, contact Senator Nelson's Orlando office at (407) 872-7173.

I attended his last Town Hall Meeting in the area, which was held at the Lakeland Public Library. The meeting room was standing room only, and I remember at least three of his staff members were also present. There were several individuals who had issues with government agencies, and the staff were quite helpful in answering their concerns or advising them on what information to provide so that they could resolve the issue. The Senator was quite informative, and was quite patient with the large turnout.

It's a small meeting room that it is scheduled for, so get there early.
