You’re cordially invited to attend our upcoming Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon on Tuesday, September 5th.
We are excited to have House Republican Floor Leader Jonathan Shell as our guest speaker.
House Republican Floor Leader Jonathan Shell has served in the House of Representatives since 2013. Shell was sworn-in on January 3, 2017 as the first Republican Majority Floor Leader in the History of the Commonwealth. He is the youngest member of the Republican Majority Caucus.
Shell represents the 71st District, which is comprised of Garrard, Rockcastle, and part of Madison counties. Before being elected as Majority Floor Leader, Shell served as vice-chair of the Local Government committee, and was a member of the Banking & Insurance and Tobacco Settlement Agreement Fund Oversight committees.
In 2015, he was selected to serve as the House Republican Campaign Chairman, where he was in charge of overseeing all Republican recruitment for the 2016 House elections. Last November, Republicans picked up 17 seats and took the majority for the first time in 95 years.
Shell helps manage Shell Farms, a 1,200 acre family farm based in his hometown of Lancaster, KY. He is a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. Jonathan and his wife, Brooke, are the proud parents of three young children, Jackson, Lydia, and Reagan.
Please mark your calendars to attend this event.
