We are Kentuckians. We want some basic things for ourselves – good jobs, clean water and air, and safe and healthy families. We want adequate, honest, and transparent government. These basic things aren’t much, but they’re much more than Congressman Hal Rogers has delivered.
Policies that will shape our future are being debated in Congress, and Rep. Rogers has a powerful role in shaping those polices. Rogers represents Kentucky’s 5th District of eastern and south-central Kentucky. As the new chair of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Rogers is one of the most powerful politicians in Washington. Yet, his district and Kentucky as a whole rank at or near the bottom of the nation in many important quality of life indicators.
Over the last several weeks, he’s proposed policies that would make college less affordable, cut access to nutrition programs, reduce opportunities for energy efficiency jobs, and block safeguards for our water and air. His positions put many families further at risk, allow additional degradation of our land and water, and do nothing to improve the quality of life for Kentuckians.
KFTC is planning a peaceful demonstration and rally at Congressman Rogers’ Somerset office on Friday, October 14 at 3:00 p.m. EDT to deliver the message that Kentuckians deserve better. Please join us to as we make our voices heard. Residents of Kentucky’s 5th district - and all Kentuckians - deserve a representative who will stand with us, not stand in our way.
We recommend that anyone attending this rally should park near the Kmart on Rt 80 in Somerset at the Cumberland Square shopping plaza. Please arrive around 2:30 pm. Then we’ll walk together about .1 of a mile to the Congressman’s office on Clifty Drive. Afterwards we will head to a member’s house nearby for a debrief and soup bean dinner. Those of us heading to the KFTC Annual Meeting will then continue on to that nearby destination.
A few things to keep in mind:
Feel free to join us Thursday, Oct. 6 at 7:00 for a webinar about Rep. Rogers’ new role and how Kentuckians can work together to impact the national conversation. The link will take you to the registration.
