We just learned late this afternoon that HF 3223 (legislation to lease and operate the Appleton prison) will have a hearing in the Public Safety and Crime Prevention Policy and Finance Committee Tuesday morning (3/22) starting at 10:15 AM.
We need a strong showing of our supporters for this hearing. To do this we are taking a charter bus to St. Paul. The schedule is that the bus will leave Appleton at 6:00 AM with stops in Montevideo at 6:30 AM and Mel's 7-71 at 7:05 AM for a 9:30 AM arrival in St Paul. We should leave St. Paul at approximately 12:00 Noon and will return to Montevideo around 2:30 PM and Appleton around 3:00 PM. Lunch will be provided on the bus courtesy of Subway of Appleton and there is no charge for the trip.
If you are interested in joining us on the bus trip please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Appleton City Office at (320) 289-1363.
