(Riverton, Wyo.) – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., will use this week’s congressional state work period to hold “listening sessions” across the state to hear the ideas and solutions Wyoming residents have for solving America’s problems. If you live in or near Powell, Thermopolis, Riverton, Rock Springs, Pinedale, or Jackson, Enzi will be stopping in your area, ready to listen and take notes.
Enzi will be in Riverton tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in the Community Room at the Fremont County Library. The listening session will last until 11 a.m. From Riverton, he will head to Rock Springs for a 4 p.m. listening session at the White Mountain Library.
“These listening sessions are just what the name suggests,” Enzi said in a news release. “I’m not planning to give a long speech. I plan to address some of the issues brought up at the session as I can at the end, but this time is for residents to say what is on their mind, and for me to listen. I hope to hear common sense, realistic and workable solutions. These are typical in Wyoming, but harder to come by in Washington.”
Today, Enzi will be making afternoon stops in Powell (1:30 p.m. at The Commons) and Thermopolis (5:30 p.m. at the Days Inn).
On Friday, Enzi will hold the final two listening sessions in Pinedale (9 a.m. at the Pinedale Library) and in Jackson (2 p.m. at the Jackson Senior Center).
Earlier this week he stopped in Gillette, Sheridan, Casper, Wheatland and Cheyenne.
Also, tomorrow, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., will be in town to speak with the Riverton Kiwanis Club. He’s the main speaker for the day. The meeting starts at 12 p.m. at The Bull and Bistro.
