The Elkins-Randolph County Chamber of Commerce gave area residents a chance to connect with their legislators Thursday.

The chamber held a post-session legislative luncheon in Elkins.

The event was designed to give area residents a chance to hear about what got done and what didn’t in the last session.

Chamber staff said it’s a way for both groups to be responsible citizens.

“Citizens have a responsibility to ask and demand things of their legislators.  They can say yes or no on how they feel about it on the ticket.  And the legislators have a responsibility to return to the community,” said ERCCC Executive Director Lisa Wood.

Also, the chamber took questions to be passed on to those legislators who couldn’t be present for the luncheon.
