LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Dozens of people were at Judi's Catering & Banquet Facility in Lafayette for a legislative breakfast on Saturday. 

People heard from Tippecanoe County Representatives in the Indiana Legislature.

They discussed their priorities, committee work and updates on issues being presented before the general assembly.

In addition people attending were able to address their concerns and ask questions in a town hall style session.

Many said it was a great opportunity to connect and engage with elected representatives.

"I think it's a great opportunity to connect directly with the people who are in the room where decisions are made," said Ken Jones, Chair for the Voters Services Committee of The League of Women Voters.

"Understanding that the people who are in these political positions answer to us," said Grant Fischer, Social Studies & Government Teacher at Lafayette Jefferson High School. "Obviously you're not going to get everything that you request. However if you are persistent and there's other people that feel the same way you do, you can expect change."

Some of the issues discussed on Saturday were education, teacher's pay and the environment.
