#asktol to connect with local government

Opportunities to interact with local elected officials in person and via social media will be offered during a series of special events this month.

A joint town hall meeting with Township Mayor Jack Froese, MP Mark Warawa and Langley school board chairman Wendy Johnson will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 1 p.m. to  3 p.m. at the Aldergrove Kinsmen Centre, 26770 29 Ave.

The event will give residents a chance to hear from their representatives and ask questions in person or through Twitter.

Moderator Frank Bucholtz, editor of The Times, will be on hand to accept written questions from the audience and submit them to the panel for discussion.

Questions can also be submitted by tweeting @Mayor Froese, @MPmarkwarawa, or @LangleySchools, using hashtag #asktol.

A question and answer period specially dedicated to the Twitterverse will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27, when Froese and members of Township council host an #asktol Twitter Chat.

From 4 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., residents can tweet @MayorFroese and other members of council using hashtag #asktol, to express their opinions and have direct one-on-one contact with their mayor and council.

The topic of the Twitter forum will be: What would you like to see included in the 2013 budget?
