U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie and staff members stopped by the Edmonson County Extension Office today as part of this summer's "Congress In Your County," a 21-county event that allows folks to speak directly with their Congressman.
"The idea is that lots of people see what's on television, but there's more to what Congress has to offer," said Congressman Guthrie. "We have someone here that can speak on veteran's issues. We have folks from our D.C. office to show people web pages that are run by Congress where you can keep up with current votes and debates, and even have the ability to watch some hearings and proceedings online."
Several folks stopped by the office today to speak with Guthrie and his staff members.
"It's always great to come to Edmonson County," Guthrie said. "We also want people to know that we know there are things that need to be done that aren't getting done because of the political situation in Washington, but we're working. We're really trying to move the country forward."
