Many believe that Provincially and Federally elected officials only work when their respective Houses are sitting and when not, little work is done. I have since discovered that is far from the case.
My lack of updates to this blog, along and my wife and family currently vacationing without me due to my duties and commitments as your Member of Parliament are reasons why. In addition to my constituency work, over the past ten days I have attended roughly twelve different meetings or events in Penticton, Summerland,West Kelowna and Peachland.
I have enjoyed these meetings greatly and believe it is very important to get up to speed on local concerns and issues.
In addition to his weekly MP Report. the Dan in Ottawa blog is another resource for residents of Okanagan-Coquihalla. Chronicling Dan’s personal experiences as he travels to Ottawa and throughout the riding as your MP.
