Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) President Doug Peterson will be having “coffee talks” throughout Minnesota – including Alexandria – in the next couple weeks.

These meetings are for members and non-members concerned about rural issues. MFU insurance agents will also be in attendance.

The meeting in Alexandria is set for Friday, May 2 at the Perkins Family Restaurant at 10 a.m.

“This is an excellent chance for people in rural Minnesota to get out and discuss their concerns regarding healthcare, bovine tuberculosis, property taxes, transportation costs, ethanol and biofuels, and gives Minnesota Farmers Union an opportunity to keep a pulse on what is going on in rural Minnesota,” said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union president.

“It also gives Farmers Union a chance to provide an update on what has been happening on the federal and state level, as well as other items Farmers Union has been working on,” Peterson added.

Minnesota Farmers Union (www.mfu.org) is a non-profit, membership-based organization working to protect and enhance the economic interests and quality of life of family farmers and ranchers, as well as rural communities.
