Haines residents who have concerns for their state representative will have the chance to talk to him in person this week.
Representative Sam Kito III will be in Haines Tuesday and Wednesday to attend a borough assembly meeting and talk with constituents.
Legislative Aide Bianca Carpeneti says Kito will have lunch at the senior center Tuesday, talk with the Chilkoot Indian Association, and meet with the borough manager and mayor. He will attend the Haines borough assembly meeting at 6:30 Tuesday evening.
Members of the public who want to meet with Kito will have a couple opportunities. He is holding two open meet-and-greets — one Tuesday at Mountain Market from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and another Wednesday morning from 7 to 8 a.m. at the Bamboo Room.
Carpeneti says Kito has time Tuesday afternoon for private meetings with constituents. Those who want to set up a meeting can call 465-4766.
Kito is a Democrat in the Alaska House representing Juneau, Haines, Skagway, Klukwan, Gustavus and Excursion Inlet.
