Both KY senators headed to Henderson in a few weeks

Senator Mitch McConnell Senator Mitch McConnell
Senator Rand Paul Senator Rand Paul

Both of the Commonwealth's U.S. Senators will be in Henderson next month, on the same day, for the first time.  

Henderson Mayor Steve Austin says the senators help out a lot with local projects like the Riverwalk.

Austin tells 14 News that Senator Mitch McConnell helped the city with transportation funding for the Riverwalk extension, helped get funding for the new tennis courts downtown, and the water intake facility.  

Austin says Senator McConnell will be speaking on July 1 at Seventh Street and Merritt Drive. He says Senator Rand Paul will be at Henderson Community College for a luncheon that day and will be speaking at the Fine Arts Center at noon.

"I try to be supportive of all of our state and federal representatives and try to get them here at any time to see our community, see what we're doing. Of course, we always ask them for their support to help our community," Austin says.

July 1 is when both senators are scheduled to visit the area.
