Today's public hearing

Today was the NKY legislative caucus hearing. It was a very impressive display of concerned citizens expressing their opinions and exercising their rights. The security officers there estimated 1000 people came to be heard today.

Rep. Santoro, the caucus Chairman, did an excellent job of making sure everyone who asked to speak could be heard. They only had 1 minute, but everyone got a chance to speak.

Most were there to ask for no cuts in education. 99% of the people were respectful of each other, the speakers and the time limit. I was very impressed with everyone.

Thanks to NKU for providing the space where so many could meet.
