State Representative Jerry Sonnenberg of Sterling will travel to each end of his district and listen to constituents Thursday, Feb. 26. His tour will start in Sterling at the Sterling Ramada Inn, east of Sterling on Highway 6. He will be there from 7:30-8:30 a.m. Sonnenberg then will join Andy Rice on KPMX Radio, 105.7 FM as part of the Morning Circus.
The tour then heads to the eastern edge of his district for a town hall meeting at the Pizza p.a.d., located at 110 N. Interocean in Holyoke. Sonnenberg is scheduled to listen to concerns from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
From Phillips County, he heads to the southwest corner of House District 65 where he will meet constituents at the Branding Iron Restaurant at 11 First Street in Fort Lupton from 3-4 p.m.
“I have a unique opportunity to meet with families throughout my district and listen to their concerns,” Sonnenberg said. “We usually don’t have this chance while the legislature is in session so I look forward to talking about pending legislation.”
Sonnenberg continually travels the district but an unusual break in the legislative session has allowed him to schedule town meetings across his district so he can meet with a number of constituents.
“I anticipate the economy will be first and foremost on people’s minds but expect transportation and the new proposed fees and taxes to come up as well,” added Sonnenberg.
Although he fields numerous questions on both the economy and transportation, Sonnenberg says nothing is off of the table.
Rep. Sonnenberg is serving in his third year as a legislator representing Logan, Phillips, Sedgwick and most of Weld counties.
