Great seeing the folks from Country Boy Brewing in DC and discussing the positive impact the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act has had on their business. I also got to try their new summer drafts for #CraftBeerWeek!
I enjoyed visiting with EKU’s Special Topics in Finance Class as they prepare their submission for the Conference of State Bank Supervisors’ national competition. Best of luck to these great students!
Thank you to EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler for visiting Kentucky for a great roundtable discussion with Kentucky agriculture producers and industry representatives, and thank you to Kentucky Ag Commissioner Ryan Quarles for hosting and inviting me to participate.

What a tremendous honor to meet Mr. James R. Crain, PFC Company A, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry, 101st Airborne Division, Vietnam. Mr. Crain contacted our office in August requesting the issuance of the Combat Infantry Badge, which he was never issued due to paperwork issues. After submitting his request, he was issued new orders for not only a Combat Infantry Badge, but for a Purple Heart Medal for injuries sustained during combat operations and several other medals as well. Thank you, sir, for your selfless service to our country.
April 23, 2019, was a great day for Montgomery County! For the first time since 1895, the City of Mount Sterling and Montgomery County have a brand new fire truck. Our office was pleased to assist local officials with a FEMA grant to help purchase this truck. Congratulations Montgomery County!
Great to be with Governor Matt Bevin and EKU President Michael Benson today in Madison County to announce Kentucky’s Appalachia Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Training Project. This project will provide opportunities for those displaced by the downturn in the coal industry, veterans, and others seeking employment in Kentucky’s ARC counties the opportunity to earn an Industry Recognized Certification as Aviation Maintenance Technicians.
