William Tokheim, Kossuth Co. Farm Bureau President, said the campaign was started April 27 at a meeting of county farm leaders. The purpose of the program is to let the county legislators know that farmers and others are insisting that something be done in this session of the legislature on this serious problem of property taxes. This action campaign is not to support any particular approach to tax revision, but is firmly emphasizing this is the session where action must be taken.
