Our friend Patrick Moore at Pioneer Public Television sent a reminder today about U.S. Representative Collin Peterson's appearance today on Pioneer Public Television.
The West Central Tribune's Anne Polta reports in Rep. Peterson to appear tonight on Pioneer Public TV live broadcast:
Seventh District Congressman Collin Peterson is scheduled to be the guest on the live broadcast "Your Legislators" at 8 p.m. today on Pioneer Public Television. The program also can be viewed via Facebook Live on the Pioneer Public TV Facebook page.
Viewers will be able to call 1-800-726-3178, email questions to email@example.com or tweet @YourLegislators during the hour-long program.
Host Barry Anderson will moderate as Peterson fields questions from viewers representing more than 500 communities throughout Minnesota who regularly interact with the program. Republican Congressmen have also been invited to appear with Peterson on the show, but as of this morning, no other guests had confirmed their participation on the show.
In addition to Greater Minnesota public television station broadcasts, "Your Legislators" is carried live on cable networks and community access stations such as SPNN and Town Square TV.
"Your Legislators" broadcasts are repeated every Sunday on the Minnesota Channel at 4 a.m., 10 a.m., 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. through the end of the legislative session.
Each episode of the program is made available for viewing online at www.pioneer.org/your-legislators. Short video segments covering the issues that are discussed in each program can also be viewed online.
We strongly encourage readers to send in questions; those from Minnesota's Seventh District residents are likely to be given priority. Questions should be civil; those that stick to issues and policy, however controversial, are more likely to be incorporated into the show than personal jabs.
Curious about Peterson's take on healthcare, the next farm bill (Peterson is the ranking Democrat of the House Ag Committee, the bombing of Syria, the opioid epidemic, the proposed border wall? Here's the chance to ask him and get a public answer.
