Legislative District 47 Senator Steve Erdman to be Guest speaker in Sidney

“The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults,” Alexis de Tocqueville said of the United States 188 years ago. Most would agree that a major fault today would be the broken American tax system, and District 47 state Sen. Steve Erdman, who helped develop the EPIC Option, believes Nebraska residents may be able to repair it.

There will be a town hall meeting to introduce the EPIC Option: Eliminate all Nebraska Property, Income, Corporate (including Inheritance) Taxes. Erdman will be in attendance as guest speaker discussing the ins and outs of EPIC, including the following topics:

· Learn how Nebraska property, income, inheritance and state sales taxes can be eliminated

· Learn how our public schools, county, city, and state government will be fully funded

· See how many Nebraska working families will save $2,000 - $5,000 taxes per year

· Learn why there is NO EPIC tax on used goods or business-to-business transactions

· Decide if you want to sign the petitions / be trained to be a volunteer petition circulator

Also in attendance will be Mark Bonkiewicz, Spokesman for the 22 member EPIC Option Strategy Team (presenter at 37 EPIC Town Hall meetings in 2023), and Val Nienhueser, Captain of EPIC Option Petition Coordinators for Western Nebr.

Not everyone is in favor of EPIC, Gov. Jim Pillen is opposed to the plan and has expressed concerns about its impact on the economy. But it is the duty of American citizens to be involved in the taxation process and one can only benefit from hearing possible options.

Snacks, iced tea, and lemonade will be provided or there will also a cash bar if that is your preference.

This important and informative town hall meeting will be held Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lazy S Ranch Event Center, located 7.7 miles east of Sidney on Hwy 30, then north 1.3 miles on Road 131. The address is 2472 Road 131, Sidney, NE.
