Governor Snyder to broadcast interactive Town Hall satellite session on ballot proposals from Marquette Oct. 30

LANSING -- Governor Rick Snyder will be in Marquette to host a live/interactive town hall meeting on the six statewide ballot proposals at 8:15 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30. While he will be physically present on the campus of Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette, NMU will host the live/interactive satellite session in four town hall locations across the region, all at the same time, in order to provide greater opportunity for UP residents to participate and receive answers to their questions directly from the governor.

In Marquette the Town Hall Meeting with Gov. Snyder begins at 8:15 a.m. in the Northern Michigan University Center, Great Lakes rooms, second floor, 1401 Presque Isle Ave. Space is limited, and an RSVP is required. (Please see below.)

Locally, the town hall session will be hosted via satellite at the Copper Country Intermediate School District, 809 Hecla St., Hancock. State Rep. Matt Huuki will be on site as the moderator.

The governor's UP stop is one of several he is making as part of a statewide bus tour designed to engage dialogue on the proposals that will appear on the Michigan ballot for the upcoming general election on Tuesday, Nov. 6.*

The governor's other Upper Peninsula town hall sites will be in Escanaba and Iron Mountain. These satellite town hall locations will also spotlight new and efficient opportunities to improve communication across Michigan.
