STATEHOUSE (June 13, 2019) — State lawmakers representing Johnson County will host two public meetings on Saturday, June 22, to provide a recap of the 2019 legislative session.

The first meeting will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Greenwood Public Library, located at 310 S. Meridian St. The second meeting will be from 1-3 p.m. at the Franklin City Hall, located at 70 E. Monroe St.

“It has always been a top priority for me as an elected official to communicate regularly with our community,” said State Rep. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland). “These meetings are instrumental to ensuring the public is able to speak directly with their lawmakers. Thank you to the Greenwood Public Library and Franklin Mayor Barnett for opening up their facilities for us to use. Unfortunately, Mayor Myers would not allow us to host a meeting at the Greenwood City Hall like we have in the past.”

Burton will be joined by State Rep. John Young (R-Franklin), and both will be available to discuss the legislative session and how new laws could affect Johnson County.

“There was a lot discussed during this year’s legislative session, and many policies will go into effect next month,” Young said. “Johnson County residents are encouraged to attend one of these meetings to learn about new laws. This is also an excellent opportunity to provide feedback on issues that will be considered during summer study committees.”

State Rep. Dollyne Sherman (R-Indianapolis), who was recently sworn in to serve out the remaining term of former State Rep. Dave Frizzell (R-Indianapolis), will also be in attendance.  

“I am eager to meet as many constituents as possible, and learn about the issues that matter most to them,” Sherman said. “There is a lot of work to be done in the coming months, and by working together, we can keep Indiana moving in the right direction.”

Other elected officials have been invited to these meetings.

Those unable to attend can contact Burton, Sherman or Young by calling 317-232-9600 with questions or comments.
