Beshear’s Town Hall – Round 2

Gov. Steve Beshear will be in Somerset tonight for the second of his 13 town hall meetings around the state this summer.

Talk of the future of casino legislation was center stage in the news accounts of the first meeting last week in Virgie in eastern Kentucky. It will be interesting to see if the conversation heads down the same path tonight or veers off in other directions.

I’m sure eyes will also be on how Beshear travels to the meeting in southeastern Kentucky tonight after the governor was criticized for spending more than $7,000 to charter three planes to take him and his staffers to last week’s town hall meeting in Pike County. The story on that trip can be found here and here.

The governor will also be heading to Winchester, a Clark County town that sits southeast of Lexington, on Thursday for his next town hall.

Update…

Beshear defended his entourage and mode of travel Monday morning during an appearance in Lexington – check out the Herald-Leader’s PolWatchers for more.
