You’re cordially invited to attend our upcoming Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon on Tuesday, February 2nd.
We are excited to host Kentucky Secretary of State, Michael Adams as our guest speaker.
Michael G. Adams, a native of Paducah, is Kentucky’s 86th Secretary of State and the 77th person to serve in that role.
Michael attended McCracken County public schools and was the first in his family to get a bachelor’s degree. After graduating from the University of Louisville, Michael attended Harvard Law School on low-income aid. Returning to Kentucky, Michael clerked for Chief U.S. District Judge John Heyburn, worked on Senator Mitch McConnell’s 2002 reelection campaign, and served as Deputy General Counsel to Governor Ernie Fletcher, before moving to Washington to accept an appointment as Counsel to the U.S. Deputy Attorney General in the second Bush Administration.
In 2007, Michael began full-time private practice in election law, first as General Counsel to the Republican Governors Association, and later opening a national practice in the field. He has represented several national political committees, numerous national political figures, and statewide campaign efforts in all 50 states. Because of this unique election experience, in 2016 Michael was appointed to the Kentucky State Board of Elections, where he gained critical preparation for serving as the Commonwealth’s chief election official.
His work in making it easy to vote and hard to cheat, and taking Kentucky from the back of the pack to a national leader in election administration in mere months, has earned praise throughout America and across party lines. Adams intends to introduce additional legislation to improve Kentucky’s elections, and to continue his administrative efforts to clean up Kentucky’s voter rolls.
Lunch will be held at The Center for Rural Development and will begin at 12:00 (Noon).
Please make your plans to attend today.
