The 2017 Legislative Chili Dinner will take place at the Buffalo Trace Clubhouse on 2/22/2017 at approx. 4:00pm (upon adjournment of the legislative session. This event will be cohosted with the KFA and the KY Fire Chiefs Assoc. We intend to make this a Fire Fighter Legislative Day, so plan on arriving at the Capital Annex around 9:00am. I ask that you meet with your respective Legislator's, so you will need to set up a meeting with them in advance. Also, give them a personal invite to the Chili Dinner, because this means more to them than receiving an invitation in their mailbox from me. If you need any assistance, don't hesitate to contact Legislative Chairman Bartley or myself.
As a result of last years' elections, there are more than 30 new Legislators, so it is very important for us to introduce ourselves to them. We will send you additional information regarding talking points to specific legislation a few days prior to the 22nd so that you will be well versed when you have your meetings.
I can't emphasize the importance of your Locals' participation in this event. There have been and WILL BE so many important issues that affect us as fire fighters addressed in this regular session as well as upcoming special sessions and we need to get OUR message heard.
As always, if you have any questions, give me a call.
