Policy Development Breakfast
What an awesome policy development breakfast we had on Friday!
We had more thna 30 people in attendance The group consisted of Farm Bureau members, local citizens, local elected officials, state elected officials and two U.S. elected officials.
After everyone helped themselves to a delicous breakfast buffet, Mike Videkovich, Pickaway County board vice president, started the meeting. We went around the tables person by person. Everyone had a chance to share their concerns about the local policies needed as well as voice their concerns with our state and U.S. officials about other concerns.
Infrastructure and funding were two of the concerns that a majority of those in attendance voiced their opinion about. We also covered information on the federal estate tax, the child labor laws, education to our students at a younger age as well as how to work with less money on a local level.
Someone even signed up for a membership that day.
If you couldn't make it to the meeting and you would like to share your opinions and concerns, please email Anna Hall and we will get your concerns in before we develop the policies for this year's annual meeting.
Thank you to all of those who came. We truly appreciate everyone showing up. Everyone from Congressmen Austria and Stivers, to State Senator Troy Balderson, to Sheriff Radcliff and Mike Estadt! We had a great group of individuals voice their concerns and everyone of them is appreciated!
