Political group expanding to area
Americans for Posterity, a group committed to restraining growth of government at the local, state and federal levels, is expanding its statewide chapter to Leavenworth, Atchison and Jefferson counties.
The group will have its initial area meeting from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 22 at Lansing Community Center, 800 First Terrace.
A news release from the organization says AFP educates and engages citizens on economic policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory responsibilities. AFP members "are committed to countering the powerful special interest groups that push relentlessly for bigger government at the local, state and federal levels," the release says.
