lrc-employee-spotlight-logoFRANKFORT, Ky. (2/12/16) — Public servants who often work behind the scenes at the State Capitol will now have moments in the spotlight.

An online feature introducing Kentuckians to the staff of the Legislative Research Commission starts today. The LRC will highlight a different staff member each week on the Kentucky Legislature Home Page through "LRC Employee Spotlight" stories and photos that will be posted each Friday at: www.lrc.ky.gov/Spotlight.htm.

The LRC Employee Spotlight will focus on the work of public servants who deliver staff support to the General Assembly, said LRC Director David A. Byerman. It will also help recognize LRC employees for their service.

"In this day and age, it's easy to be cynical about government," Byerman said. "But if you really take a close look, you realize just how lucky we are to have these outstanding people serving Kentucky. The Employee Spotlight will help tell their stories."

The LRC Employee Spotlight will showcase the wide variety among almost 400 employees in the agency: print shop workers, lawyers, constituent service experts, policy analysts, inventory and maintenance staff, secretaries, researchers, accountants, investigators, information technology professionals and others.

Staff members will share their stories about working in a place where history is made each time the General Assembly convenes.

Today's inaugural LRC Employee Spotlight features a legislative librarian who first answered questions and provided research assistance to lawmakers and citizens as a cooperative education worker for the LRC while in high school in the '80s. She is now in charge of a collection of more than 25,000 items in the agency's library.
