Clay County residents with a burning desire to ask an elected official a question will be able to Monday when 8th District Rep. Brad Ellsworth appears at Page's Food Store at 9 a.m. for an hour-long "Congress Comes to You" program.
In 2004, Ellsworth made a campaign promise to be accessible to the people he would serve if elected to Congress.
"Congress Comes to You" programs, which take place at grocery stores, libraries, and other venues in local communities are sponsored by Ellsworth as a way to allow his constituents a way to share their views and concerns about government issues and problems they may face with federal agencies.
Ellsworth is also scheduled to appear in other programs in Spencer, Shoals, Washington, and Mt. Vernon on Monday and Tuesday.
