LANSING – State Representative Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) will host monthly coffee hours in hopes that residents will attend to get updates on state government and to share their ideas for Michigan’s future.

“As I meet with residents, I regularly pick up great ideas and valuable insights on issues that are important to our community,” said Irwin, who serves on the House Energy and Technology, and Judiciary committees. “Maintaining that dialogue is one of the most important parts of my job. Holding monthly coffee hours will be one more way for me to keep in touch with constituents about their concerns and ideas and continue the conversation about Michigan’s future.”

The coffee hour is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29, at Caf? Verde, 216 N. 4th Ave. in Ann Arbor.

“Ann Arbor has always been an outspoken community and I look forward to working with my staff to answer questions and work on their ideas,” Irwin said. “I invite residents to share their thoughts with me personally by coming down to one of my coffee hours.”
