Kolste to hold office hours on city bus
JANESVILLE—Rep. Debra Kolste will hold an Office Hours on the Bus session from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Thursday on several Janesville Transit System buses.
“The city transit system is important,'' said Kolste, D-Janesville. “This will give me a chance to talk to constituents who use the system while learning more about public transit.''
Kolste will board the bus at the Downtown Transfer Center 123 S. River St. at 9:15 a.m. She will be riding the following bus routes throughout the 44th Assembly District at these times:
