“But I want to take this opportunity to reach more people and really understand what they want from their local member.
“I want to co-design a plan to develop a better understanding of what people want to see in our community, to understand how I can strengthen my representation, and to better understand how I can better communicate with the local community as their member. local.
Dr Paterson said the conversations would be moderated by professionals.
“During these fun and collaborative sessions, we will ask nine questions in 90 minutes that will bring out participants’ ideas on how we can work better together. »
