Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — The League of Women Voters of Ottumwa invites area residents to the second of three legislative forums at 9:30 a.m. March 1 at Bridge View Center.

The forums are designed to provide an opportunity for citizens to ask questions of the state legislators representing parts of Wapello County during the 2014 session of the Iowa General Assembly. State Reps. Mary Gaskill and Larry Sheets and state Sens. Mark Chelgren and Ken Rozenboom are all invited to participate in the forum.

The forum begins at 9:30 a.m. in Bridge View’s studio. League members will be issuing numbers to anyone interested in asking a question of legislators. Throughout the forum, those numbers will be randomly drawn to ask questions regarding their issues or concerns. Background information and the question itself are timed, as are responses from legislators, to allow for more questions.

The forums are free of charge to the public with the costs absorbed by the League, Ottumwa Area Chamber of Commerce and Ottumwa Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The third and final forum of the year will take place on April 5 at the same location.
