Jason Hasert, Field Representative for US Senator Rand Paul, visited with the group at Philly's in Greenville, KY. Mr. Hasert shared with the group his experiences in discovering politics in College, joining the college Republican Club, interning for elected officials, and working in Washington DC on Capitol Hill.
