STATEHOUSE (March 16, 2018) — State Reps. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) and John Young (R-Franklin) will host a town hall meeting on March 24 to discuss the 2018 legislative session.

The town hall will take place from 1-3 p.m. at the Franklin City Hall, located at 70 E. Monroe St.

“In order for us to best represent our community, a steady stream of communication is important,” Burton said. “It’s never too early to begin talking about concerns in our community that can possibly be addressed in the next session. I encourage the community to come out and be involved in the legislative process.”

Burton and Young will provide information on how new laws will impact Johnson County and answer questions concerning local and state issues. 

“Town halls provide an opportunity for the community to connect with their elected officials,” Young said. “Now that the legislative session has concluded, we will be able to update everyone on new laws that made it through the process and answer any questions people may have.”

Additionally, Burton will host another town hall the same day at 10 a.m. at the Greenwood City Hall, located at 300 S. Madison Ave.

Other state lawmakers have also been invited to attend these meetings. Those unable to attend can contact Burton or Young by calling 317-232-9600 to ask questions or provide feedback on new laws.
