Question of the Week: What's on your mind?Posted by Randy | February 22, 2012
This week, I am hosting a Town Hall and Listening Series throughout the greater Chesterfield area to hear what's on the minds of Fourth District citizens. Americans are frustrated with Washington. They want leaders that will bring people together to solve problems, not divide them for political gain. I believe that the common-sense solutions we need to fix our nation's problems come from hardworking taxpayers, not Washington. I've already had the opportunity to hear from many of our neighbors, business leaders, and seniors at our first town hall and listening sessions over the past two days. However, I realize that not everyone is able to travel to Chesterfield or attend these events in person. Below you will find issues or comments that I have heard about frequently over the course of the past few days from a tele-town hall I conducted in my Washington office and my travels throughout Chesterfield.
