Public servants showed superb statesmanship

CORBIN — On Monday, Feb. 17, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Sen. Rand Paul and the state secretary of agriculture were in London at Wildcat Harley-Davidson.

Each of these public servants spoke of raising industry and employment in Eastern Kentucky. They spoke of differences in political viewpoints with the president without rancor. At no time did they belittle or demean their opposition.

Instead, they spoke of what they wished to happen to improve conditions in Eastern Kentucky. They pointed out differences without incendiary comments.

Those not at the event missed a superb exhibition of statesmanship.

Charles Hayes, MSGT USAF (Ret.)
