Post-Election Webinar, December 15th
The Rural Center hosted the first in a series of ongoing advocacy webinars designed to inform and engage rural communities across the state. We introduced the center's new Advocacy Director, John Coggin, and analyzed the outcome of the national and state election and the impact they may have on rural communities. We looked ahead at what we anticipated from upcoming sessions of the General Assembly and Congress. We discussed the status of long-term hurricane recovery packages at the federal and state levels (action anticipated in early to mid-December). We also gave the latest information on court ordered legislative redistricting and the 2017 special election. Missed the webinar? Click here to watch the entire presentation.
