Councilman Rick Blackwell has invited members of Jefferson County’s Legislative Delegation to the next District 12 Dialogue on Tuesday, June 16th at the Ormsby Heights Baptist Church beginning at 7:00pm.
“Our State Representatives and Senators will have just begun a special session on the budget to deal with the current economic crisis,” says Blackwell. “This will be a chance to learn what kind of options are on the table in Frankfort in dealing with shortfalls that could affect Metro Louisville.”
Senator Perry Clark as well as Representatives Tim Firkins, Joni Jenkins, Dennis Horlander, Charlie Miller and Ron Weston will be among the lawmakers to discuss issues and answer questions from the group.
Joining state lawmakers at the meeting will be representatives from Louisville Metro Police, the Division of Licensing and Permits, Neighborhoods and MSD to answer questions about programs or concerns. A representative of Congressman John Yarmuth's office will also be in attendance.
“You do not have to have a question about the state budget to attend,” says Blackwell. “Our delegation is also helpful in many projects around the area that deal with safety and economic development, so I encourage you to come and meet them.”
Ormsby Heights Baptist Church is located at 2120 Lower Hunters Trace.
