Woman's Club to Host Legislative Forum

Murray, KY – The Murray Woman's Club hosts a Legislative forum this Thursday, which will feature numerous candidates running for state and local political offices. Both candidates for 1st District State Senate Republican Incumbent Ken Winters and Democratic challenger Carroll Hubbard have confirmed they will attend, as well as 12 of 13 candidates running for Murray city council. Democratic candidate for 1st district U-S Representative Heather Ryan will also attend. Neither her opponent, incumbent Ed Whitfield nor U-S Senator Mitch McConnell has replied to the invitation. Senator McConnell's opponent, Democrat Bruce Lunsford responded, but event organizers say it's unlikely he will come due to a previous obligation. The forum will take place in the woman's clubhouse and is set to begin at 7 p-m. Prior to the forum, attendees can partake in a chili supper that will raise money for the club. Both events are open to the public.
