Last forum of year Saturday

The final monthly Legislative forum of the year will be from 7:30-9 a.m. Saturday at Best Western Fairfield Inn.

Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce organizes the forums, of which there are four. The forums are an opportunity for constituents to ask questions of their state Senators and Representatives.

Note that the forums have returned to Best Western Fairfield Inn and are not at the Fairfield Public Library like they were last year. At the time, then chamber director Detra Dettmann said the chamber wanted to move away from the fee-based breakfasts to a venue where everyone was welcome free of charge.

The event remains free, like it was last year. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided to visitors, and chamber director Darian Sloat will host the program.

The state legislators invited to attend include: Sen. Mark Chelgren (R-Ottumwa), Sen. Rich Taylor (D-Mt. Pleasant), Rep. Phil Miller (D-Fairfield) and Rep. Dave Heaton (R-Mt. Pleasant).
