Kentucky’s Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman visits Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Local, state and even federal officials have made their way to western Kentucky to see the damage from the storms themselves and offer their support.

Today, Kentucky’s Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman stopped in Bowling Green after visiting Mayfield and other impacted areas.

She joined local officials to survey storm damage then visited the volunteer center at Cumberland Trace Elementary.

She says she is touched by the impact volunteers are having on one another consistently in the state.

“It truly has been story after story on the ground that I hear about neighbors helping neighbors and being there for each other. The spirit of Kentucky in the worst circumstances is truly shining through. And so, for that, I am grateful, Judge, you lead a very compassionate and wonderful community, and I know you know that, but we’re seeing it now more than ever,” said Coleman.

Coleman promised to bring concerns expressed by local officials back to the governor for assessment.
