Sen. Rebekah Warren invites local residents to join her for coffee hours
State Sen. Rebekah Warren, D-Ann Arbor, will be hosting two separate coffee hours in Washtenaw County next week to speak with local residents.
The first coffee hour will be held from 6-7 p.m. Monday at Ypsilanti Township Hall, 7200 S. Huron Drive.
The second one will be held from 9-10 a.m. Friday at Scio Township Hall, 827 N. Zeeb Road.
In a recent interview with AnnArbor.com, Warren expressed disappointment with the way the state's 2012-13 budget turned out.
"For me, it was really disappointing because this is the first time in quite a while that we actually had money to spend, and instead of reinvesting in the things I think really matter to most people — our public schools, our senior programs and those among us who are struggling and have the least — we didn't do that," she said. "We didn't invest where we really need to be."
