U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, announced he will be taking part in a congressional listening tour that will bring him to Belleville and Cairo over the next week.
The Belleville stop on the tour is scheduled to run from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Lindenwood University, 2600 W. Main St.
The aim of the tour is to cover all dozen counties in the 12th District by the end of 2015, giving his constituents a chance to share their thoughts and ask questions of Bost.
“Meeting with my constituents on a regular basis is the most effective way for me to get a real sense of what issues are important to them,” Bost said.”This is an informal, face-to-face way to build relationships with folks from all corners of the district, regardless of their political persuasion.”
The Cairo tour stop is set to run from 9 to 10 a.m., April 6 at Cairo City Hall, 1501 Washington Ave.
