“I want to make sure I am being as accessible as possible to the folks of Bay County so I know what’s on their minds,” Brunner said. “I know that right now, people have a lot of concerns about the proposed state budget and the effect it has on seniors, schools and working families. If you have ideas or concerns about ways that state government can work better for you and your family, this is a great chance for us to talk about them over a cup of coffee.”
