Congresswoman Jenkins Visits with Local Residents


Kansas congresswoman Lynn Jenkins engaged with the Pittsburg community today to discuss priorities and visit small businesses.

Jenkins welcomed locals to her office in downtown Pittsburg. Residents gathered to discuss matters with each other and to ask Jenkins questions.

The congresswoman then headed to Pitt State to take a tour of the facilities at the Kansas Polymer Research Center.

She later visited various small businesses in the area.

"My main goal is just to find out what is on the minds of the folks that represent," said Jenkins. "I don't think I can do a good job in Washington unless I know the priorities of the people at home and how they would like to see the major issues of the day addressed."

Some issues the residents discussed included the farm bill and immigration issues.
