LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley today announced that the Governor's Office of Constituent Services is going mobile to help address questions and concerns of Michigan residents.

Beginning on Monday, June 18, representatives from the Governor's Office of Constituent Services will visit more than 60 locations across the state to meet face to face with community members. Staff will be available to answer questions, address concerns, offer explanations and take suggestions in regard to current government issues affecting citizens, communities and businesses. The program is scheduled through mid-July.  

"I want to hear directly from those in communities across Michigan. Our citizens are my top priority," Snyder said. "We continue to listen to many ideas and suggestions and this is another way to make government as accessible as possible."

Important topics for discussion include but are not limited to the state budget, the ongoing reinvention of Michigan and opportunities to get involved in state government. Representatives will be on hand to offer assistance with state agency relations and any other state-related matter.  No appointment is necessary.  The mobile hours are in addition to regular office hours of Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. in Lansing.
