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.

There were several issues discussed, including the national debt, the Coal Industry, the 2nd Amendment, and Healthcare. Mr. Hasert relayed to them Senator Paul's desire to be of help to the citizens.
