Natural Bridge area County Judges and others attend economic summit at Slade with Senator Rand Paul


Senator Rand Paul was at the Hemlock Lodge at Natural Bridge State Park today discussing tourism and economic development in Eastern Kentucky. A large crowd was on hand for today’s event and luncheon. The county judge executives from Estill, Wolfe, Lee, Menifee and Powell were all invited to hear the Senators comments and engage in a question-and-answer session with the Senator.

The Natural Bridge and Slade area are the focus of some exciting developments that some are thrilled about, and others worry it will commercialize the area too much and fear it will cause the popular area to lose its natural “allure.” WBON TV9 will have more on the developments in future reports.
