BURLINGTON, ON

 

The moment a politician is sworn in they begin work on the next campaign.

That means meeting people, listening to their problems and their concerns.

Doing that with the whole world dealing with a pandemic is a challenge under the best of circumstances.

AVK on a call

Known as AVK – Adam vankoeverden books telephone call appointments with is constituents.

Adam van Koeverden has come up with an interesting way of covering that constituency base: he books appointments for telephone calls.

On his Facebook page Adam van Koeverden explains: “Yesterday was a great little innovation for the way we proactively engage with our constituency.

“I took 11 calls in two hours for a quick touch-base, catch up and chat with Miltonians on issues from tree planting to local jobs, from CERB and EI changes to traffic, travel and rural high-speed broadband access.

“COVID-19 has changed the way we now meet up with one another, but it won’t stop me from interacting with our community, or with our neighbours one on one.

“If you have ideas, feedback or enquiries, feel free to register for a phone call with me.”

    One term MP FOR SURE who parachuted into this riding since he doesn’t even reside here.
