PONCA, NEBRASKA—Community members are invited to a conversation about legislative issues on Monday, Nov. 25, in Ponca, Nebraska. Hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs, this free event will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Ponca Carnegie Library, 200 W. Second St.

"This legislative session, we saw many issues important to rural communities debated, including a healthy soils task force, property tax reform, and the beginning farmers tax credit,” said Jordan Rasmussen, policy manager with the Center for Rural Affairs. “Join us to learn about those topics, important issues for the 2020 session, and how to share your voice.”

A member of the Center for Rural Affairs policy team will be on hand to talk about the upcoming legislation. They will share advice and tips on how to engage with local leaders and the government effectively.

“Our representatives rely on their constituents to be engaged with them on these issues, so be sure to bring your questions and comments,” Rasmussen said.

Light refreshments will be provided.

To RSVP, contact Trenton Buhr, Center for Rural Affairs policy assistant, at 402.687.2100 ext. 1010 or trentonb@cfra.org. For more information, visit cfra.org/events
