Idaho District 34 Representative Ron Nate

Representative Ron Nate (R-Rexburg), a key leader in the fight for tax relief for Idahoans, will be the featured speaker at the Saturday, April 17, Liberty Dinner.

Nate’s topic for the second in the series of Liberty Dinners will be tax relief.  He will address the effort to repeal the grocery tax and property tax relief.  Further, Nate will discuss roadblocks faced in the legislature that are hindering efforts to have bills proposed by legislators on tax relief and other important measures heard.  The evening promises to be an enlightening one.

Nate was born and raised in Salt Lake City.  He received his B.S. in economics from the University of Utah and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Connecticut.  Nate is an economics professor at BYU-Idaho.  During his teaching career of over two decades, Nate has helped nearly 10,000 students understand the blessing of America’s free-market economic system.  Nate and his wife, Maria Olsen Nate, have four children.

The dinner will be held at the Bannock County Veterans Memorial Building, 300 N. Johnson Avenue in Pocatello.  The doors open at 6:00 p.m., with attendees having the opportunity to meet other citizens involved in, or looking to be involved in, promoting conservative ideas locally and in Idaho and beyond.  Guests will then be served a catered dinner of pulled pork, cole slaw, barbecue bean medley, green salad, and dessert.  Following the presentation by Representative Nate will be a question and answer period and additional time for networking.

The cost to attend the dinner is $25 per person.

Part of the proceeds for the event are dedicated to the AMVETS Americanism scholarship fund.

The Liberty Dinner series is sponsored by the Pocatello-Chubbuck Observer.
