Sen. Mary Olson, DFL-Bemidji, is holding a series of town hall meetings today in the Senate 4 district, including Bemidji.

"Everyone knows our state is dealing with an economic crisis that will require the government to tighten its belt," says Olson. "As we decide how to deal with our budget challenges, it will be important to be thoughtful about the impact of our decisions and think strategically about how to improve our state's economy as we move forward."

She wants to hear from people how legislative decisions affect their day-to-day lives. "In many respects, I believe rural communities have been particularly harmed by the policies of the governor."

- 9 a.m. Pillager, City Council Chambers.

- 1 p.m. Akeley, City Council Chambers.

- 4:30 p.m. Bemidji, City Council Chambers.
