LETTER: ‘Chat with Kelly’

To the Editor:


I recently attended my first “Chat with Kelly” at the Shore 96 restaurant in Shoreview. Rep. Kelly Moller is holding monthly chat sessions with her constituents the fourth Sunday of the month during the legislative session from 1:30-2:30 at Shore 96. I attended Februaryís session where about 20 people came to hear what Rep. Moller has been doing at the capitol, ask questions and share ideas and concerns in an informal discussion format.

I have lived in this area for 30 years and we’ve never had a representative create an opportunity like this. Rep. Moller’s outreach is impressive and appreciated. Kudos to her for making the time to interact with her constituents face-to-face on a regular basis.

Rep. Moller came across as genuinely interested in what we had to say and she provided us with lots of information regarding current and upcoming proposed legislation. She didn’t talk around the issues like some politicians. She was straight-forward, knowledgeable, and honest in responding to questions and concerns - which was quite refreshing.

I thank Rep. Moller for these informal chats. They are a great idea. I hope to attend more in the future.
