ST. PETER - Representative Tim Walz will host a "Congress on Your Corner" event in St. Peter to hear directly from southern Minnesotans on whether to authorize military force against the Syrian government.
Walz will be at the St. Peter Food Co-op, 228 West Mulberry St., from noon to 1 p.m.
"Authorizing the use of military force is one of the most serious votes Congress can take. Before taking this vote, I invite all who are interested and able to share their thoughts with me in person this Friday in St. Peter," said Walz. "If you are unable to make the in-person meeting, I invite you to call my office, email, or tweet me and share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas regarding Syria. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for taking an active role in your democracy."
The number for Walz's office in Mankato is 507-388-2149.
