Joint Town Hall
By John sharp
Kansas City state representatives Michael Johnson, Mark Sharp and Yolanda Young are hosting a joint in-person and virtual town hall meeting from 1 to 2-30 p.m. Saturday, September 25, to discuss legislation they intend to sponsor and support during next year’s session of the Missouri General Assembly.
They will explain their efforts to reduce violent crime and what they feel are the misguided efforts of some other legislators to severely restrict what public school teachers can tell their students about the most troubling parts of our country’s history. They also will explain the process that has just begun to change the boundaries of state legislative districts and Congressional districts in Missouri.
Dr. Traci Johnson, MD, an expert in maternal health, will speak at the town hall about the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations to protect the health of mothers and their children.
A special presentation will honor a southland resident who has devoted countless hours to improve our community.
The legislators have agreed to stay after the formal part of the town hall to talk individually to persons attending to answer questions about legislative issues and state government and to offer assistance as needed to persons having problems with state agencies.
The event will be at Concord Fortress of Hope Church, 11050 W. Longview Parkway, in south Kansas City near Longview Lake. In-person attendees will need to wear masks. The meeting will be in the sanctuary which is big enough to provide ample room for social distancing.
Persons wishing to participate virtually should go online to zoom.us , The passcode is 569361.
