Senator Claire McCaskill to visit Columbia on Monday

Sunday, March 16, 2014 | 4:24 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Columbia residents will have the chance to voice their opinions on job creation and the economy directly to Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill at a public town hall meeting Monday.

The meeting will be held at 11:15 a.m. on Monday in the City Council Chambers in the Daniel Boone City Building, located at 701 E. Broadway. The public is encouraged to RSVP here.

The meeting is part of the "McCaskill on Main Street" tour. McCaskill will be traveling to communities across the state this week to answer questions, gather ideas from constituents and explain firsthand how she is working in the Senate to boost jobs, according to a news release from McCaskill's office.

"I get my best ideas not from Washington, but from folks on the ground in Missouri," McCaskill said in the release. "These meetings are another chance for me to hear directly from families and businesses, and to answer their questions."

McCaskill will hold a similar town hall meeting at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla on Tuesday. She was elected to her second term in 2012.

Supervising editor is Zachary Matson.
