Congressman Brett Guthrie paid a visit Monday to the fifth-grade classes at Hodgenville Elementary School and Abraham Lincoln Elementary School to talk about how the U.S. Government works and answer their questions.
“I was invited to a class when I was in the State Senate and spoke to a group. I came up with a way to relate the government we have in a way they understand, and I enjoy doing it,” Guthrie said.
Guthrie went on to explain that when he visits a community in the 2nd District, he almost always visits organizations such as the Rotary Club or the Chamber of Commerce and sees the same people.
“Which is wonderful, but when you come to a school, teachers can’t go to meetings in the middle of the day,” he said. “You see the superintendent and maybe the principal, but not teachers or lunch room workers. So I get a chance to talk to young people, but I also get to see constituents. People who I represent who I don’t usually get to see.”
