Beshear in Owensboro on Monday for press conference, town hall meeting

Gov. Steve Beshear will bring his “Beshear About Kentucky” listening tour to Owensboro Monday night.

The event, which allows residents to ask questions of the governor and cabinet secretaries and offer suggestions, begins at 6 p.m. at Apollo High School at 2280 Tamarack Road.

While in town, Beshear has also scheduled a 4:30 p.m. press conference with Rep. Tommy Thompson, a Philpot Democrat, to talk about home foreclosure relief.

Beshear spokeswoman Jill Midkiff said little information will be released prior to the press conference, which is being held at 2431 Ford Ave. – a home built by the Philpot legislator’s company, Thompson Homes, and featured in this year’s Parade of Homes.

Beshear will also stop in the McLean County town of Sacramento earlier in the day to present a ceremonial check there for a housing assistance grant.


Beshear will be talking about House Bill 552 at this afternoon’s press conference on Ford Avenue.

The bill, sponsored by Thompson and passed this spring, establishes the Kentucky Homeownership Protection Center that is designed to provide homeowners with information about how to avoid foreclosure. The new law, which went into effect last month, also puts in place new requirements for mortgage lenders.

House Bill 552 passed both chambers without opposition.
