Daschle staff in Vermillion June 16 Senator Tom Daschle said that a staff member from his Sioux Falls Senate office will meet with residents of Clay County on Wednesday, June 16.
Gina Pederson, outreach coordinator for Senator Tom Daschle, will be at The Olde Towne Bistro from 9 to 10 a.m. to meet with constituents.
Daschle said this outreach effort is designed to make it easier for people living in smaller, less populated communities to contact him. "We realize that because of the distance or work commitments, many people are unable to visit our office in Sioux Falls," Senator Daschle said. "This is an extension of my longtime practice of visiting each of the 66 counties in the state each year.
Daschle said his staff member will be available for people who have a problem, question or opinion they want to discuss. Daschle urged Clay County residents to take advantage of this opportunity to address any concerns or to get help for a problem. In addition, South Dakotans are encouraged to call Daschle's toll-free line (800-424-9094) whenever they would like to relay a message to Senator Daschle or a member of his staff.
