Be an informed constituency

Eggs and Issues, sponsored by the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance and Iowa Central Community College, is worth the time

Many of the issues that members of the Iowa Legislature deal with each session are complicated. In some communities, it’s difficult for citizens to stay as informed about the decisions lawmakers make as would be ideal.

Locally, however, Eggs and Issues makes staying well-versed about what is happening in the state capital easier. This forum, which is sponsored by the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance and Iowa Central Community College, is an opportunity for area residents to be updated regularly by state lawmakers. It also affords a superb chance for anyone who participates in the sessions to share their views with the elected officials who represent the area in the Legislature.

Eggs and Issues takes place monthly when the Legislature is in session. The first session for the current year will be held from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Saturday in the Bioscience and Health Sciences Building on the campus of Iowa Central Community College.

The Messenger is a strong supporter of the Eggs and Issues project. The dedication that area lawmakers have shown to making these meetings productive is greatly appreciated. We urge readers who wish to be better-informed citizens to add Eggs and Issues to their personal calendars.
