Skundrick is holding a series of town hall-style meetings with residents throughout the county, including rural areas, about once a month. The intent of the public meetings is for residents to discuss issues important to them with Commissioner Skundrick, who hopes to listen, answer as many questions as he can, and nurture better communications. He has held meetings in Shady Cove and Gold Hill so far.
“I have been very pleased with the town hall meeting and the audiences have been very receptive. Residents have asked some tough questions on real issues that are important for our area. I really believe that my attending city council meetings last year went a long way in creating a comfortable atmosphere, as well as helping me know and understand what is important throughout the County,” said Commissioner Skundrick. “I’m looking forward to meeting with residents of the Upper Rogue.”
Skundrick, who is the 2012 Board Chair, has served on the Jackson County Board of Commissioners since January of 2011. He says he encourages people to come out and discuss all topics, including their hot issues.
The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the Applegate Branch Library.
