Warren County magistrate attends conference at the White House

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A Warren County magistrate is back in Bowling Green after a productive trip to the White House.

Doug Gorman, who represents Warren County’s first district, was invited to attend the State Leadership Days Conference in Washington, D.C.

Gorman, along with 25 other city and county elected representatives from the commonwealth, spent the day learning about federal policies affecting local communities.

Gorman listened to remarks from Trump administration officials, such as Secretary of Education Betsy Devos and the Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow.

Gorman said they learned a lot about transportation, access to broadband and the opioid crisis.

He called the experience, “rewarding.”

“The more involved you are, the more things can happen,” said Gorman. “I took it as a great opportunity to go up there and share some of the concerns of Warren County, Kentucky. It was a great experience and a great opportunity. I would hope to do it again. I’d love to be involved in the future as well.”

The State Leadership Days Conference is in its second year. This is the first time a representative from Warren County attended.
