Skelton plans Pulaski County meetings about economic and military issues
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Jan. 2, 2010) — U.S. Rep. Ike Skelton announced Wednesday that he will hold a three-day series of meetings next week on job creation and the economic impact of military installations with local leaders in several communities of his district, including St. Robert, Dixon and Lebanon.

According to Skelton’s press release, the intent is to “speak with local leaders and businessmen to discuss efforts to spur job growth and the economic impact of his military initiatives in Missouri.” Topics will include “the longstanding economic footprint of the armed forces in Missouri and Congressman Skelton’s future plans for the region.”

The St. Robert meeting will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, sponsored by the Waynesville Chamber of Commerce in the Hampton Inn located at 103 St. Robert Plaza off St. Robert Boulevard. Those who want more information may contact Mike Dunbar at (573) 451-2265. Another meeting will be the same day at 3 p.m. at Greater Ozark Enterprise Center in Dixon, located at 400 South Elm Street. Those who want more information may call (573) 759-6096.

The Lebanon meeting will be at 9 a.m. Thursday, sponsored by America’s Heartland Economic Partnership, which is the economic development organization for Lebanon and Laclede County, at 186 North Adams Ave. in Lebanon. Those who want more information may call (417) 533-5627.

The other three meetings are elsewhere in the district and not in the local area.
