FRANKFORT, Ky. — Agriculture Commissioner James Comer will make an appearance in Hancock County on Monday, fulfilling his goal of visiting all 120 Kentucky counties in a year for the second consecutive year.


Commissioner Comer will host a town hall meeting at 11 a.m. CST at Hancock County High School, 80 State Route 271S, Lewisport.


“Kentucky is a state of diverse people, topography, resources, and interests, so as a statewide elected official, I think it’s important to meet the people where they are and listen to their concerns,” Commissioner Comer said.


As a candidate for agriculture commissioner, Comer promised to visit every Kentucky county so he could meet people in areas that may not have seen a statewide elected official for years or even decades. Comer kept his promise in his first year in office when he traveled to Martin County last December.


Monday’s town hall meeting is open to the public, and everyone is invited to attend.
