Justice of the Peace (JP) James Zahnd will hold his first Town Hall meeting from 10 a.m. until noon, Wednesday, Jan. 23 at Summit Bank, 24705 Hwy 5, just outside the East Gate entrance to Hot Springs Village. Zahnd, who represents District 13 on the Saline County Quorum Court, said any resident of the district is welcome to attend the meeting where he will discuss pertinent issues relating to Saline County government and respond to constituents’ questions.
Elected for the first time last November and sworn-in with other Saline County officials on January 1, Zahnd said this Town Meeting will be the first in a series of regular meetings held throughout District 13. “Maintaining regular communication with my constituents will be an important part of my work,” Zahnd said. “It is important that the people of the District know what is happening in Saline County government, and that I know their views on the issues. Regular Town Hall meetings are just one way I plan to encourage effective two-way communications about matters important to us all.”
District 13 includes the Crows, Paron and Ten Mile communities as well as the Saline County portion of Hot Springs Village. Zahnd said Town Hall meetings will be held in each of those areas at a time and date convenient to the residents.
