Congressman Barr and Commissioner Comer to address Jessamine Lincoln Day Dinner
A political event to inform voters what has been happening in Kentucky and Washington D.C.
Nicholasville, Ky. - February 11, 2013 - The Republican Party of Jessamine County (RPJC) will hold its 2013 Lincoln Day Dinner on Saturday, February 23, at the Asbury University Dining Hall in Wilmore.
The keynote speakers will be newly elected Congressman Andy Barr and Kentucky Agricultural Commissioner James Comer.
Jessamine County Republicans had a clear role to play in Congressman Barr’s victory in November, supplying many hours of volunteer work in Jessamine County and throughout the 6th District. This dinner will be a great opportunity to learn from Congressman Barr what is going on in Washington at this crucial time of budget negotiations.
Commissioner Comer has been an outspoken advocate for the legalization of hemp, an issue that is of significant importance to many Kentuckians.
This annual event has a history of featuring well-known local and state dignitaries and celebrities, including Sens. Mitch McConnell, Jim Bunning, and radio personality Leland Conway.
“We are very honored to have Congressman Barr and Commissioner Comer come to Jessamine County” remarked Sara Kauffman, chairman of the RPJC executive committee. “The commitment of both leaders to conservative principles is completely consistent with the conservative values of Jessamine County.”
The Lincoln Day Dinner will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 23rd, be held at the Asbury University Dining Hall. Cost of the event is $40 per person. An RSVP is required.
