New legislator meets with constituents

Several Summit residents seized the opportunity Monday evening to talk one on one with Rep. Aaron Regunberg at the Rochambeau Library.
The newly elected Democrat represents District 4 in the General Assembly and has instituted a “Hold Your Rep Accountable” program in which he will be available for constituents to drop in and share ideas or questions with him.
By 6 p.m. Monday, halfway through the two-hour time allotted, about 10 local people, some of them members of the Summit Neighborhood Association, had sat down with Regunberg to discuss topics as diverse as solar power and dying with dignity. Each person had as much time as needed as the others waited, munching on donuts the legislator provided.
The intimate session was in contrast to a larger community discussion Regunberg held in November and he promised to have another such event in the coming months. His notification of Monday’s meeting said he thinks “it’s valuable to have this regular accessibility,” but in the meantime, “feel free to reach out to me anytime by email or phone.”
