The public is invited to attend a Regional Legislative Breakfast hosted by the Green River Area Development District on Saturday, January 28th. This free event will be held at the GRADD office at 300 GRADD Way in Owensboro.

Breakfast will be served at 9:00 a.m. and will be followed at 9:30 a.m. by a forum with the state legislators who represent the seven-county region in Frankfort. 

Senators Joe Bowen, Carroll Gibson, Jerry Rhoads, and Dorsey Ridley, as well as Representatives John Arnold, Dwight Butler, Jim Glenn, Jim Gooch, Tommy Thompson, and David Watkins have been invited. 

In an effort to keep our listeners and readers informed regarding the current legislative session in Frankfort, we are attempting to "Spread the Word" regarding special legislative meetings in the area. While the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce will hold three such meetings it is important to note they are for Chamber Members.

The GRADD Legislative Breakfast is for anyone in the GRADD district that included seven counties. We at 1490 WOMI hope you can attend and be involved with the legislative process. It is also a great time for students to come and learn how our representative system of government works.


This meeting 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 2012 General Assembly.
