Town Hall Circuit

I'm continuing my mission to hold a town hall in all 35 counties in the first district. I recently just finished my 18th town hall, and I'm now halfway to the goal.

In May, I hosted town halls in Marshall, Clinton, Metcalfe, McLean, Adair and Fulton Counties. Many people continue to come and ask thoughtful questions, and are very engaged in the process.

A Washington Post reporter followed me around for three days as we traveled across Kentucky. The reporter wrote a national story about my town hall schedule and our district.  You can read his article here.

In addition to town hall meetings, I have been touring businesses and meeting with constituents all across the district.  Here are a few pictures from my latest visits:

Meeting with Secretary of Agriculture

In an agriculture committee meeting with the Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, I was able to talk with the Secretary about tobacco regulations.

We discussed a burdensome regulation from the Obama Administration that was issued in the final days regarding the amount of N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN) in smokeless tobacco. It's a classic example that shows a broken regulatory system. This unattainable regulation is devastating to tobacco farmers across the first district. Dark-fired tobacco is very important in my district, and I want to do everything I can to help make sure it continues to thrive.

In a previous newsletter, I told you about a letter I wrote to President Trump in the early days of his Administration and asked Agriculture Secretary Perdue about the matter. If you want to see the full testimony from the meeting, you can click here.

Constituent Services

My offices provides a wide array of constituent services. One of the most important things my staff does is casework. We can help on issues you are having with federal agencies. 

I'm very proud to have Luke King as my Constituent Services Director out of the Tompkinsville office, and Teressa Carroll in the Paducah office handling casework for the district. They do an excellent job of getting issues resolved. You can see a story here from WPSD in Paducah, where Luke talks about what my office can do for you.

National Outreach

I've recently been on CNN talking about issues relating to the Russia Investigation, town hall events and more. It's important for people outside the beltway to understand our district, to realize President Trump won my district by 50 points. I highlighted this fact in both interviews.
