There are numerous issues facing state legislators right now — funding, pipeline property tax exemption, and budget shortfalls, to name only a few.
We have an opportunity to hear it straight from the legislators’ mouths Saturday when Sen. Jeff Longbine and Rep. Bob Brookens visit Hillsboro and Marion. They will talk with constituents 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the city building in Hillsboro and then will travel to Marion for a 10 a.m. meeting at the Marion Community Center, formerly the municipal auditorium.
Let’s attend one of these meetings and hear their reports. Ask them questions. Find out where they stand on these important issues.
