Out of touch.
That seems to be the general consensus among my friends and family about the government's relationship with the daily lives and concerns of those they govern.
How would you like to be in touch?
I have an exciting event coming up that provides an opportunity for me to be in touch with our state government. Next Wednesday I'll be joining a group of Hoosier mom bloggers to meet with Lt. Governor Becky Skillman for a roundtable discussion. The topic? Whatever concerns us as Hoosier mothers, whatever weighs heavily on our minds.
It's a fantastic opportunity to be in touch and to be heard, and I'd love to include you by asking you to share what's on your mind. If you had an hour with the Lt. Governor, what would you want to discuss with her? The Lt. Governor oversees five agencies: Agriculture, Community & Rural Affairs, Energy, Housing and Tourism. Have something near and dear to your heart that pertains to those agencies? Let me know, and I'll take your concerns, questions and suggestions to the Indiana Statehouse with me.
