I hope you and your family had an enjoyable Fourth of July holiday weekend. This week, I had the opportunity to travel through the Sixth District, meet with many Kentuckians, answer your questions, and listen to your concerns.
The House of Representatives will reconvene this week, and we will begin a busy agenda for the second half of the year. While there is much work to do, the House has made progress on many of the priorities of the American people. Watch the video below for a recap of our work during the last six months.
Service Academy Sendoff
Last week, I hosted a sendoff celebration for the four U.S. Service Academy Appointees from the Sixth District. These young men are headed to the United States Naval Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Appointees include William Chad Castillo of Lexington (Naval Academy), William Michael Bossert of Lexington (Naval Academy), Zane Patrick Logan of Winchester (Merchant Marine Academy), and Robert Casey Dionne of Richmond (Military Academy). I join all Kentuckians in wishing them the best as they begin this journey.
Honored to speak to the Kentucky Disabled American Veterans at their annual convention in Lexington. These men and women have truly sacrificed for their county. Thanks to State Commander Ewing and the KY DAV organization for their work and the opportunity to speak.
I enjoyed lunch with pastors in Jessamine County. I appreciate their dedication to service in their community and the Sixth District.
I participated in the re-opening of Lock 4 on the Kentucky River in Frankfort. Thanks to Jerry Graves, Joy Jeffries and everyone else who worked hard to make this idea into a reality.
I had a great time visiting with constituents at Coffee with Your Congressman in Frenchburg.
I held a town hall meeting with seniors in Powell County. Appreciated the opportunity to hear their ideas about how I can best represent them in Washington.
Please continue to let me know your thoughts and concerns about issues facing our community, and I hope you will forward my newsletter to your friends, family and neighbors.
You may also visit my website, Facebook and Twitter, where you can find regular updates about my work at home in the Sixth District and in Washington.
Thank you and have a great week!
Sincerely, Andy Barr
