Medicine Hat’s MLAs will return to the Medicine Hat Public Library in early February for another townhall event.

The Honourable Danielle Smith, MLA for Brooks-Medicine Hat, and Justin Wright, MLA for Cypress-Medicine Hat, are holding the event in partnership with the library.

The townhall takes place on Feb. 2 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the library theatre. The evening will be open to everyone with seating on a first come, first seated basis. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m.

Ken Feser, chief librarian at MHPL, will serve as moderator for the townhall.

“We are excited to once again host a townhall with our city’s MLAs,” says Feser. “These events give library patrons and the community the chance to hear their elected officials speak to the issues that are important to the citizens of Medicine Hat and the region.”

A capacity crowd of more than 150 people filled the library theatre for the last MLA townhall on Oct. 18, 2023.

The upcoming townhall will follow the same format, with questions to be submitted in advance through an online form. The form will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 1, at 9 a.m.
