Beshear in western Kentucky tomorrow

Gov. Steve Beshear will be making the rounds in western Kentucky Thursday afternoon before heading to Madisonville for his next town hall meeting.

The governor will be at the Merle Travis Music Center in Powderly at 12:15 p.m. for a check presentation to Muhlenberg County for housing rehabilitation and will then head to Dawson Springs, Princeton and Sturgis for similar events in those communities.

His “Beshear About Kentucky” event at Byrnes Auditorium at 750 N. Laffoon Drive in Madisonville begins at 6 p.m.

This will be Beshear’s first stop in western Kentucky on his “listening tour,” which appear to be eliciting some response and ideas from those attending. At an event Monday night in Raceland near Ashland, The Daily Independent reports that folks asked him about illegal immigration, job development, casino gambling and health care.

Beshear will be in Bowling Green on Aug. 6, Owensboro on Aug. 11 and Henderson on Aug. 18 as part of the tour.
