Citizens for California High Speed Rail Accountability (CCHSRA) and the Kings County Farm Bureau (KCFB) will co-host a fundraising luncheon/reception to "Protect Agriculture and The Valley" on Thursday, February 20th, 2014 at the Civic Auditorium in Hanford, California.

Special guests include Congressman David Valadao, Assemblyman Frank Bigelow and Assemblywoman Diane Harkey along with invited guests Senator Andy Vidak and Assemblyman Jim Patterson with others TBA.

Those who attend the fundraiser will have a chance to hear elected officials speak about key issues adversely affecting agriculture in the Central Valley which include California high-speed rail and water. Attendees will also have a chance to personally ask the legislators questions.

"This is an historical event where our legislators will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Central Valley citizens and agriculture to call on our state to be accountable," said KCFB Executive Director Diane Friend.

A fundraising sponsor lunch with special guests will be followed by a lunch reception. Sponsorship and ticket information inquiries should be made via email to CCHSRA Board Members Alan Scott (a_scott1318@comcast.net) and/or Helen Sullivan (sullypnh@wildblue.net).

Kings County Farm Bureau is a non-profit advocacy organization, which represents approximately 800 members of the agricultural community. The mission of KCFB is to provide education, promotion and representation of agriculture.

Citizens for California High Speed Rail Accountability (CCHSRA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy group based in Kings County whose members reside in the city of Hanford and surrounding rural areas, along with other Californians who are affected by the high-speed rail. The group has been in the forefront since June 2011 attempting to get the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) and its board to be in full compliance with Proposition 1A which the state's voters passed in November 2008.
