Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear visited Washington County during a Democratic fundraiser for David Sparrow on Sept. 18 at Burg Park. Sparrow, a resident of Danville, is a candidate for state representative from the 54th district in the commonwealth.
"Democrats in Washington County have gotten more organized over the last few years," said Washington County Judge/Executive John Settles. "This event is specifically for David Sparrow, to support his campaign for state representative."
The event was also attended by state representative Tommy Thompson, of Owensboro, from the 14th district and Rocky Adkins, from Sandy Hook, representing the 99th district.
