BC Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko is hosting a MP Community Forum this month in Princeton.

Since his election eight years ago Atamanenko has regularly hosted meetings in communities throughout his riding in cooperation with MLAs, locally elected officials and other stakeholders involved with issues of concern.  He favours the forum format because it provides an opportunity for panelists to briefly address the audience and then the meeting is opened to questions from the floor.

“Our Forums are a perfect example of elected officials from all levels of government cooperating in the best interests of their community.  Folks can express their concerns and ask questions of all the representatives,” said the NDP MP.

“Personally I find that these meetings give me a better idea of what issues are important to constituents and how different areas of my riding are affected,” added Atamanenko.

The Princeton Forum will be held Wednesday, March 19, 2014 from 7 – 9 p.m.,  at the Princeton Legion (170 Bridge St.).

Panelists:

Alex Atamanenko, MP

Jackie Tegart, MLA, Fraser-Nicola

Frank Armitage, Mayor of Princeton

Brad Hope, RDOS Area H Director.
