And I (along with about 20 other bloggers) will have her ear, next week. I have been invited to participate in a Blogger Roundtable Discussion with Lt. Governor Becky Skillman, on Wednesday. It wasn’t until a few days ago that I realized that probably meant I needed to come prepared with some thoughts. Or questions. Or anything other than my “nice” pants (and that’s not a euphemism… I really mean pants that don’t have a drawstring or grease stains).
Earlier this week, my blogger friend Angie wrote a post, asking her readers what type of question they might like her to ask on their behalf. So I decided to steal take inspiration from her idea, and ask my readers the same question. Obviously, this mostly applies to my readers who live in Indiana (though, by all means, if you live elsewhere but have a burning question for our Lt. Governor, then speak up — because otherwise I might end up inquiring about her favorite flavor of créme brulée).
One of the agencies the Lt. Governor oversees in our fair state is Agriculture. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that the state department of Agriculture in Indiana would probably not be a department with which I would see eye-to-eye on many issues. But the reasons are complex and much more that I want to delve into if I get to ask only one question.
So, what do I ask? Knowing that I am not asking to necessarily get an answer, but to make known the thoughts and concerns of food-loving people in Indiana? If you have a suggestion, do tell. Otherwise, it could be me babbling nonsense with nothing to defend my incoherence but the disclaimer, “I don’t get out much.”
