  • This week in the State Capitol - State Representative Brandon Reed

    This week in Frankfort marked the halfway point of the 2018 Legislative Session. Kentucky is a robust state, with many incredibly good traits, and some serious issues still to tackle.

    For those of you who have been living under a rock the past couple of weeks, several of our community leaders and others worked hard to bring a traveling exhibit called “Hometown Teams” to LaRue County.
