Town Hall Scheduled with Senator Sullivan

Our very own 41st District representative, Nebraska State Senator Kate Sullivan, will be hosting a town hall in Ord on September 14th at the Ord Learning Center (1514 K Street).

Nebraska State Senator Kate Sullivan

Join the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce, Valley County Economic Development and local leaders in a discussion about issues that affect our communities and you, the rural resident. We’d also like to know: what do you want to know from our Senator? Are you concerned about property taxes? State-aid to schools? This is YOUR opportunity to speak your piece to your elected representative. The town hall starts at 11am.

One particular item that might be worthy of discussion is LB 226. You can download a copy of the resolution here. The legislative resolution has created an interim study to look at “rural opportunity zones” or ways to repopulate rural Nebraska communities. The study is based off of a similar program in Kansas that was enacted into law this past year (you can see the bill here).

Readers: do you think a re-population bill can positively grow our local economy?
