By By Jason Cannon
Later this month local residents will get the chance to meet the state's senior-most senator.
U. S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) will join the residents of Franklin County for a county visit on Feb. 19, at 4 p.m.
The county visit, which is open to the public, will take place at the Russellville City Hall.
Sen. Shelby is expected to discuss his legislative agenda for the 110th Congress as well as important issues facing the nation and the state of Alabama.
Following his remarks, Sen. Shelby will open the floor to questions and comments from those in attendance.
"Over the years, these meetings have provided an excellent opportunity for area residents to listen and voice their opinions on the activities of our government," Shelby said. "This will be a great chance to discuss the important issues facing our state and our nation as the 110th Congress reconvenes."
This is Shelby's 1382nd county visit since being elected to office. Shelby holds a meeting in each county once a year.
