Harkin visits Albia, chats with constituents

Senator Tom Harkin stopped in Albia on Tuesday to discuss issues with Monroe County area constituents.

The event was held at the Highway Restaurant, which used to be an A&W. The restaurant recently changed ownership and has been remodeled. The food is pretty darn tasty and everything on the menu is affordable. So if you're ever down in the area, I recommend stopping by. It's the kind of place where you can order breakfast food any time of day...biscuits and gravy, pancakes, bacon...good stuff like that.

Anyway, Harkin had a good discussion with the people in attendance. He talked a lot about education...making college more affordable, providing federal funds to improve our school facilities, and a lot of discussion about the problems with the No Child Left Behind Act. There were lots of questions from the crowd.

KTVO TV from Ottumwa was there, but I can't get KTVO on my DirecTV. If I can find a story online about it, I'll edit this and add a link.
