Legislative Breakfast

2019 Legislative breakfast scheduled for February 16

The League of Women Voters of Greater Lafayette, in partnership with the Farm Bureau Tippecanoe County, will be hosting a Legislative Breakfast on Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Judi's Catering & Banquet Facility, 101 Plaza Lane, Lafayette.

The Legislative Breakfast provides community groups and constituents with the opportunity to ask questions and outline their collective concerns to a group of lawmakers and legislative leaders. The League and Farm Bureau are honored to host an event where our public officials willingly take time out of their schedules to offer their attention to key issues. A question and answer period will be followed by statements from each legislator summarizing their views of the session.

The cost for the breakfast is $15 for League and Farm Bureau members and $20 to the general public. Reservations are required by February 8, and may be made online. Attendance to the Forum is free with admission at 9:45 a.m.

Past Legislative Breakfasts

There was standing room only for the Annual 2017 LWVGL Legislative Breakfast at MCL Restaurant and Bakery in West Lafayette on February, 18. Legislators in attendance include Sheila Klinker, Ron Alting, and Sally Siegrist. The event was moderated by Sallie Fahey. Tough questions were asked and responses were not always agreed upon but these forums are a way to communicate between legislator and voter. Thanks to all the League members who planned and managed the event for the public. Thanks to the public for turning out and sharing your thoughts and ideas with the legislators.
