Rogers Public Library – Friends of RPL Community Room
Conservative Arkansas and the Washington County Tea Party would like to invite you to join us as we host an update on the Arkansas Highway Commission with Senator Jeremy Hutchinson (District 22) and his efforts to get the money to follow the cars. For those of you who attended the first meeting Conservative Arkansas held on this topic, you are aware that there is a glaring inequity between the transportation taxes coming out of NWA and the highway improvement dollars being invested back into the area.
Directly after the meeting with Senator Hutchinson (approximately 12:30), we will also be holding a members-only vote for general election endorsements. All are welcome to attend the meeting but only members will be allowed to stay and vote in the election. If you are not yet a member and would like to vote, you may become a 2012 member at the door for the pro-rated membership price of only $10. With membership, you also get a free Conservative Arkansas T-shirt.
