State Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield will hold a Wilson County legislative information exchange session for her constituents from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Wilson County Public Library’s assembly room.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
Topics will include legislative priorities and public policy for 2019. The meeting is also to recruit members for the 2019 Wilson County Citizens Legislative Advisory Council. The council will prioritize legislative items raised by residents during listen-and-learn sessions that Farmer-Butterfield held during her re-election campaign.
Farmer-Butterfield, D-Wilson, is serving her ninth term representing House District 24. Under new legislative maps developed during a court-ordered redistricting process, the district now encompasses all of Wilson County.
Farmer-Butterfield said she wants people to come out and talk with her Saturday, adding that she needs people on the committee to volunteer their expertise.
“Let’s make each other accountable for what’s happening in our district,” she said.
