Taxpayer Forum

The Jackson County Republicans hosted a Taxpayer Forum yesterday at the Ohnward Fine Arts Center in Maquoketa:

Speakers included State Auditor David Vaudt, U.S. Senate Candidates George Eichhorn, Steve Rathje and Christopher Reed, 1st District Congressional Candidate Dr. David Hartsuch, RPI Co-Chair Leon Mosley, Highway 30 Coalition Chair Edith Pfeffer and Jackson County Supervisor Candidate David Kendell.

All speakers were given time to speak on various tax-related topics. Following their speeches, a Q&A session was held. Guests of the event were given a chance to ask questions, to which any of the speakers were allowed to respond to. It was a very informative day and gave everyone in attendance a chance to meet and speak to a lot of the candidates that they will be voting for in the upcoming primary election on June 3rd and the general election on November 4th.
