Legislative Coffees Scheduled for Cass County


February 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Officials with PRIDE (the Progressive Rural Iowa Development Enterprise) say three legislative coffees have been scheduled to take place in Cass County during the 2013 session. PRIDE President Kenner Baxter says coffees “Are opportunities to have face-to-face dialogue with our Iowa legislators.”  Redistricting means the addition of Senators Hubert Houser and Jake Chapman to Cass County and the return of Representatives Clel Baudler and Jack Drake.

The first coffee takes place 10-a.m. Saturday, February 16th, at the Cumberland Fire Station. The next event will be held at the Marne Community Center beginning at 10-a.m., on Saturday, March 16th. The final gathering is at 10-a.m. Saturday, April 20th, at the Griswold Library. Also taking place that day is the community celebration to reopen the facility after its extensive remodel.

P.R.I.D.E. is the economic development organization that works on behalf of communities, businesses, and citizens from Cumberland, Lewis, and Marne for Southwest Iowa development.
