Missing MLA

For months now I have tried to get a meeting with my MLA Michelle Stilwell.

For months now I have tried to get a meeting with my MLA Michelle Stilwell. My attempts have included everything from e-mails, phone calls and dropping by her office. The matter I need to speak to her about affects many of those in her constituency, fits within her portfolio and is of a time-sensitive nature.

So far I have managed to score an appointment which was cancelled a few weeks later. I have tried repeatedly to re-book, but all I have experienced is stumbling blocks. My calls are not returned and when I do get through to staff I am told that I will be called back but this does not happen.

Remind me again why we elect an MLA?
