BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce held another "Hot Stove" session Saturday.

Congressman Jared Golden was in attendance.

The session allowed Golden to share what they have been working on in Washington.

It also gave members of the business community a chance to share with him their concerns as well.

"As you can see it is well attended and well liked and it's a great opportunity that encourages people to have that access to their elected officials whether that be their federal, Senate, or U.S. Rep, and probably most commonly their state representative," said Golden.

"We're very fortunate in Maine that we have access to our lawmakers. It's not true in every case that you can easily speak with your congressman or you legislators, and Maine is fortunate to have those opportunities. As a Chamber of Commerce, it's really our job to create those opportunities, and to convene our members and business owners with those who represent the" said Deb Neuman, President of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce.

There will be another session next month.
