Lyons, NE - The Center for Rural Affairs will host two separate Town Hall meetings, one with State Senator Roy Baker, and one with Senator Laura Ebke. Discussed will be issues that impact the daily lives of Nebraska's low income families and New Americans, including health care, fair tax policy and building wealth and inclusivity in our communities. 

“Come talk with your Senators about the things you care about most, and help influence policy that benefits all Nebraskans,” said Lauren Kolojejchick-Kotch, with the Center for Rural Affairs.
“Whether you’ve never communicated with your Senator, or are in touch with them often, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to have face-to-face time with the individuals elected to the legislature to represent your needs, and hopes for your community. Bring ideas, concerns and questions,” added Kolojejchick-Kotch. “We are working to ensure that Spanish translation will be available.”
