U.S. Representative Mark Pocan will be on campus next week to meet with Beloiters over lunch. The congressman represents Wisconsin’s 2nd congressional district, which includes the city of Beloit, as well as Madison—it’s the position formerly held by U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin.
If you’re interested in meeting and speaking with Rep. Pocan, stop by the Presidents Lounge (adjacent to Commons, in Chapin Hall) at 12:30 p.m. next Wednesday (Sept. 25). He’s recently been involved with work on the Right to Vote Amendment, the Budget Committee, and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. For more about his stance on various political issues (healthcare, housing, action in Syria), you can visit this page of his website.
