Mayfield, Alvarado to talk at forums

Published 11:21 am Monday, May 14, 2018

Clark County’s two state legislators will discuss this year’s session in a pair of public forums Monday.

State Rep. Donna Mayfield and state Sen. Ralph Alvarado, both Winchester Republicans, were scheduled to have the discussion earlier this year, but it was rescheduled until a larger venue could be found.

The two sessions are scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Clark County Extension Office, 1400 Fortune Drive.

At past legislative updates, Alvarado and Mayfield spoke about what was accomplished during the session and then took questions from people in attendance.

This year’s session was particularly controversial as legislators worked on bills for pension reform, the state budget and tax reform. All were vetoed by Gov. Matt Bevin and were then overridden by the General Assembly in April.

Alvarado and Mayfield’s seats are on the general election ballot this fall. Alvarado is running for another term. Mayfield, though, announced during a candidate forum earlier this month she was dropping out of the race.

Both events are open to the public.
