GRADD will host Legislative Breakfast on Saturday

The public is invited to a Regional Legislative Breakfast hosted by Green River Area Development District, or GRADD, on Saturday morning, January 30 in 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.

The GRADD release indicates Senators Joe Bowen, C.B. Embry and Dorsey Ridley, as well as Representatives Jim Glenn, Jim Gooch, Suzanne Miles, Dean Schamore, Tommy Thompson and David Watkins 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 2016 General Assembly, including key topics of a comprehensive budget bill and road plan, plus public pensions, education funding and expanded Medicaid.
