Plan to join us for the Bluegrass Institute 2017 Legislative Breakfast & Liberty Awards this Thursday, May 25, from 7:30 am to 9 am.
There’s still time to register and find out more information about this event here.
This event will be held in the beautiful Keeneland Room @ Keeneland Racecourse, 4201 Versailles Road, Lexington, KY 40510. We will experience magnificent views of the racetrack and Kentucky’s Bluegrass countryside during morning training.
Registration and a buffet breakfast will be available beginning at 7:30 am with the program highlighting the 2017 regular session of the Kentucky General Assembly and presentation of Liberty Awards from 8 am – 9 am.
Among this year’s Liberty Award winners will be the late Lowell Reese for his legacy and commitment to making government more open, accountable and transparent to all citizen-taxpayers and his dedicated efforts to genuinely reform Kentucky’s public pension crisis. The efforts of our pension reform team are building on the foundation Lowell so aptly laid. Lowell’s wife, Carol Reese, will be joining us next week.
Other award winners this year include Sen. Christian McDaniel for his leadership during the past several years resulting in making the commonwealth’s legislative pension system subject to Kentucky’s open records laws and Amye Bensenhaver, a foremost expert on Kentucky’s sunshine laws who recently became director of the Bluegrass Institute Center for Open Government.
The purpose of the nonpartisan Liberty Awards is to recognize policymakers who have promoted policies by taking principled and often courageous stands in behalf of free markets, individual liberty and limited – and transparent – government.
These awards identify policy, rather than political, accomplishments, and are given to leaders in both political parties who demonstrated leadership during the past year to make Kentucky freer, more prosperous and more responsive to the needs of citizens.
