“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

A few Black Hills area legislators will be featured speakers at each meeting, and there will be a Q&A time for members of the public to ask questions of the legislators.
