Walczyk Announces Return Of ‘Bonfire Sessions’

Informal Gatherings an Opportunity to Meet & Discuss State Issues with Assemblyman

Assemblyman Mark Walczyk (R,C,I,Ref-Watertown) is announcing the return of his “Bonfire Sessions.”These listening events are an informal way to discuss issues important to residents of St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties, directly with Assemblyman Walczyk.

“I think that government can get a little too formal with podiums, starched suites, that sort of thing.And, quite frankly, I think that can discourage some folks from participating in their representative democracy,” said Assemblyman Mark Walczyk.“This isn’t your normal ‘town hall’ style of event.The ‘Bonfire Sessions’ are meant to be informal, laid back and give residents the opportunity to sit around a campfire and talk about the issues that matter to them.” 

Details of the Bonfire Sessions are as follows:

The St. Lawrence County Bonfire Session will be held Tuesday, October 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Lisbon Beach, 9975 State Highway 37 in Lisbon. Should there be inclement weather, please gather under the covered pavilion near the beach.

The Jefferson County Bonfire Session will be held on Tuesday, October 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Glen Park Fire Department, 630 Main Street in Glen Park. Should there be inclement weather that evening, the event will be held inside the fire hall.
