Rep. James Comer (R-Tompkinsville) writes that his priorities as a new member of Congress were to, one, “stay connected with constituents back home;” two, “make sure that I remained accessible” while in Washington, and, three, read messages. He hails his 35 town-hall forums in Kentucky, work to help 550 individuals in federal casework claims and influence of “every phone call,  message and meeting” on his voting. He also cites the 21st Century Cures Act, Kate’s Law, No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, Pain Capable Unborn Protection Act, EQUALS Act, Industrial Hemp Farming Act, tax reform and key votes on national security as key legislative successes. “I am proud to be working toward the goals President Trump outlined for our nation,” he writes.

Fewer flowers, more ministry--fantastic Chuck Stinnett feature (and beautiful pictures) in Henderson's (still-fantastic) Gleaner.
