I would love to have the opportunity to see you. Every Tuesday (when the Senate is in session), I host a "Good Morning Michigan" reception to meet with constituents who are in town. The reception runs from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. and is always held in one of the Senate office buildings. If you would like to RSVP by telephone, please contact my office at (202) 224-4822. Or RSVP online:
I can help you obtain tickets to tours of the Supreme Court, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and the White House. However, due to the large demand for these tickets, and their limited availablity, I cannot guarantee we will be able to get your ticket on the date you request. Please be sure to give at least 3 to 6 months notice so I have a better chance of obtaining tickets.
