Today, Andy Barr will make several stops at small businesses and civic organizations in Harrison County as he continues his "Jobs for Kentuckians" Tour of the Sixth Congressional District. Since announcing the tour in February, Barr has visited Bath, Fleming, Menifee, Montgomery, Nicholas, Powell, and Wolfe Counties.
"I am excited about the opportunity to meet with Harrison County citizens and business owners," said Barr. "We know we need jobs in Kentucky, and these counties are hurting more than most. We're taking this tour to listen to the people about real solutions -- how lowering taxes, reducing overzealous regulations and creating greater entrepreneurial freedom can put more Kentuckians back to work."
In Harrison County, Barr will visit Avi's, a bakery in Cynthiana at 11 AM and tour Harrison Memorial Hospital at 2:00 PM. This evening, Barr will attend the Harrison County Tea Party Candidate Forum.
In the last few weeks, Andy Barr has stopped in Bath, Fleming, Montgomery, Nicholas, Powell and Wolfe Counties, as well as traveled to Menifee County to join in tornado relief efforts. Barr's visits included:
Franklin Sousley Iwo Jima Flag Raising Ceremony in Fleming County (February 19th).
Whitaker Bank in Powell County (March 13th).
The Carlisle-Nicholas County Industrial Authority (March 27th).
Menifee County relief efforts with Sheriff Rodney Coffee and others. (The March 27th visit to Menifee was Barr's second to the county to assist in relief efforts since the storms.)
People's Exchange Bank in Mt. Sterling, Montgomery County (March 29th).
Dough Boys Pizza in Owingsville, Bath County (March 29th).
Bank's Auto Sales and Mann's Chevrolet and Buick in Campton, Wolfe County (April 5th).
Wolfe County Farm & Home Night (April 5th).
"As I talk to employees, business owners and citizens, they all are looking for one thing -- the opportunity to do good work and earn a living," said Barr. "We need Washington to remove the hassle and burden of starting and operating a small business so entrepreneurs can create the jobs we need here in Kentucky."
