The Miami Area Chamber of Commerce will host Eggs ‘N Issues, a legislative breakfast, at the NEO Ballroom at 7 a.m. on Oct. 16.
Miami Schools Superintendent Bill Stephens is among the slate of speakers expected to make presentations. He will speak on a school bond issue set to come before voters in November.
Several elected officials will be attending the bi-annual event, including state Sen. Charles Wyrick, state Rep. Larry Glenn, Miami Mayor Brent Brassfield and Ottawa County Commission chairman Russell Earls.
Field representatives from U.S. Senator James Inhofe, U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, and U.S. Rep. Dan Boren's office have also been invited.
“Eggs ‘N Issues is held twice a year primarily to ask questions and present concerns to our legislators,” said Shane Cowger, the event's committee chairman. “This breakfast is open to the public and we encourage everyone to attend. As always, there are several important issues that business owners will face this year. By attending this breakfast, businesses and citizens can discuss these issues with the legislators face to face.”
Each legislator will be allotted approximately 10 minutes to give updates on activities in their area of government.
The cost to attend is $8 per person and includes a buffet breakfast. For reservations, call the Miami Area Chamber of Commerce at 542-4481 by Wednesday.
The event is sponsored by Oklahoma Natural Gas and Northeast Rural Electric Cooperative.
