NV-03: Joe Heck's "Office Hours"

Oh, so now he'll finally meet face to face with his actual constituents?

Congressman Joe Heck is offering the chance for voters to meet face-to-face with him and get their questions answered.

"My job is to represent you in Washington, D.C. and I take that responsibility very seriously," Heck said on his website.

Heck says he's scheduling office hours for more personal and in-depth conversations with constituents.

For a chance to speak with Heck, call 702-387-4941 to set up an appointment.

Not so fast! He's doing it on a Monday morning, right at the time when most Southern Nevadans have to go to work. And already, there are reports of appointments being denied (as staffers claim those being denied will be put on the "waiting list" for whenever this happens again), limitations on "group meetings", and ten minute time slots.

Why am I not surprised? Oh, well. At least Heck is finally willing to meet some of his constituents. I guess that's a start in the right direction.
