  Former Democratic Maryland Governor and presidential candidate Martin O’Malley will be the keynote speaker at the Purchase Area Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. The Calloway County Democratic Party sponsors the annual event. Chair David Ramey said O’Malley has been active since the election and sees the benefit in speaking to rural areas.

 

“He and a lot of other people understand that rural Kentucky- or areas like rural Kentucky- are where we need to work on being more competitive.” Ramey said.
