"Our legislators remain interested in hearing what the citizens of this community have to say, and the attendees want to hear what the legislators have to say. The issues that have already been identified prior to the legislative session have a direct impact on our community, and we need to better understand the issues as well as have an understanding of the legislators' positions on these important issues. Issues to be discussed at the event include transportation, water, taxes, jobs, reapportionment and education."
