State Representative Michael Lee Meredith, also an Edmonson County resident, accepted yet another award last night, as he received the "Friends of Kentucky Cities Award" at the Bowling Green City Commission Meeting. The award is given by the Kentucky League of Cities to legislators who perform outstanding work in the legislature advocating for issues that impact cities across the state.
“From my father’s role as mayor of Brownsville, to my own work as a former member of the city council I understand the hard work that our cities, both large and small, do to make their communities a better place to live and work,” said Representative Meredith. “As someone who tirelessly advocates for our cities I’m humbled to be named a Friend of Kentucky Cities, and pledge to continue working on their behalf in Frankfort.”
The accolade is added to a longer lists of endorsements and awards including: recognition from The National Federation of Independent Business for Meredith's 100% pro-small business voting record, a recommendation from the KY Right-To-Life Political Action Committee, endorsements from The Associated General Contractors, which is the leading organization in Kentucky's commercial construction industry, an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association for being an advocate for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, The Kentucky Educators' Political Action Committee for preserving public education, as well as the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #13. He also recently received the Hospice Champion Award from the KY Hospice and Palliative Care Association for moving their legislative priority forward in a bipartisan manner.
Meredith added, "I can't tell you how much I appreciate these awards and endorsements, but my main focus is serving the people of the 19th District, as it's been since day one. It's just humbling that other folks are taking notice."
