    Want to ask your Montgomery County Commissioner a direct question? Well, you can this evening in person or via a Google+ Hangout if you can't make the meeting.

    Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro and the board are hosting its third "Conversation with Your Commissioner" town hall meeting tonight at 7 p.m. at the Norristown Municipal Hall, 235 East Airy St.

    “These conversations with the commissioners are another in a series of ways we are trying to keep residents informed about what we are doing. We also live stream our meetings online and use social media a great deal to inform everyone about what is going on in the county," said Shapiro.

    "Tonight is the first time we will be utilizing a Google+ Hangout so constituents can participate in the conversation virtually in real time.”

    The gatherings usually draw 50 neighbors into the room. 

    Shapiro urges residents to attend these conversations either in person, or online this evening, so they can hear what has been accomplished during the first two years in office. The meetings are an opportunity to "hear what issues are most important to residents."

    In addition to participating in person or by the Google+ Hangout livestream, the commissioners will take questions submitted by email. You may reach the commissioners and submit your question by emailing commissioners@montcopa.org

    In order to use Google+ Hangout, you need a Gmail email account. More details on how to participate can be found here

    • March 11 - Lower Merion Township building
    • March 22 - Abington Township building
