Sasse to participate in community conversation at Northeast

NORFOLK, NE – U.S. Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb), will be in Norfolk later this week to meet with citizens during a “community conversation” at Northeast Community College.

The event, sponsored by the Norfolk Daily News, Calmwater Financial Group of Norfolk and Northeast, will be held Friday, May 3, from 5:15-6:15 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus.

The topic for the conversation will be: “Nebraska Grit: Community, Agriculture and Opportunity after our rebuild.”

This is the latest in a series of community conversations that, in the past, have focused on topics such as medical marijuana, the Trump presidency, water rights, property taxes, energy issues and recruiting and retaining young professionals.

Sasse was elected in 2014 to the U.S. Senate, winning each of Nebraska's 93 counties, and securing the second-largest margin for a new senator in the history of the state.

The public is invited to attend.
