Cass County: Three legislative coffees have been scheduled in Cass County for the 2016 session.
The first is at 10 a.m. Saturday, February 6, at the Cumberland Fire Station, 216 Main Street, Cumberland.
Marne is the second host Saturday, March 5, 10 a.m. at the Community Center, 403 Washington, Street, Marne.
The final coffee of this session will take place Saturday, April 2, 10 a.m. at the Lewis Community Library, 506 West Main Street, Lewis.
“The greatest thing about these coffees is our ability to talk with our elected leaders like they are our friends and neighbors, because they are.” says Clarke Gerlock, vice-president of the Progressive Rural Iowa Development Enterprise, the sponsoring organization.
“Cass County legislators have appreciated for years the tremendous turnout from citizens in our area. This year, we welcome back Senators Tom Shipley and Jake Chapman, and Rep. Clel Baudler. We welcome new legislator, Rep. Tom Moore, who won the election to fill the open seat from the passing of Rep. Jack Drake in the fall of 2015,” continues Gerlock. “These men come to our towns in their district to hear our views so they know what matters to us for our children’s schools, employment and business opportunities and other important issues. Are you interested in the future of education, jobs, or opportunity? We are, too, so please join us these three Saturdays.”
P.R.I.D.E. is the Progressive Rural Iowa Development Enterprise, the economic development organization that works on behalf of communities, businesses, and citizens for Southwest Iowa development.
