ALBION – There is still time to register for Friday’s Legislative Luncheon, when state and local officials will outline important issues and take questions from residents and the business community.

The Orleans County Chamber of Commerce coordinates the luncheon every year at the Village Inn. State Sen. George Maziarz and State Assemblyman Steve Hawley will be there to provide an update from Albany and hear concerns from the businesses.

County Legislator Don Allport will represent the county at the luncheon. Ken Pokalsky, vice president of government affairs for the New York Business Council, will also share the organization’s agenda for the year, highlighting legislation the group supports and opposes.

The Chamber will take RSVPs by the end of the today’s workday. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. and includes lunch at the Village Inn.
