The public is invited to attend a Regional Legislative Breakfast hosted by the Green
River Area Development District (GRADD) on Saturday, January 21, 2017.

This free event will be held at the GRADD Office (300 GRADD Way, Owensboro). Breakfast will be served at 9:00 a.m. and will be followed at 9:30 a.m. by a forum with state legislators who represent the seven-county region in Frankfort. Senators Joe Bowen, C.B. Embry and Dorsey Ridley, as well as Representatives Jim Gooch, Suzanne Miles, Dean Schamore, DJ Johnson, Matt Castlen and Robby Mills have been invited.

The event will provide an opportunity for citizens to meet with their legislators and to participate in a discussion of important issues facing the GRADD region and the Commonwealth of Kentucky during the 2017 General Assembly.

Additionally, the forum will be broadcast live through the GRADD Facebook page where any posted questions will be addressed. Viewers can also follow the GRADD twitter account (@GRADD_KY) to ask any questions for the legislators. “This session has swiftly begun unlike any other,” said Jiten Shah, GRADD executive director. “Both new and returning legislators will be addressing topics such as right to work and prevailing wage, as well as tort reform, charter school, judicial redistricting and participating in a Medicaid review panel.”
