Lunsford in Mayfield

Sent by the campaign:
Lunsford “On the Job” at Mayfield gas station Wednesday
Democratic Senate nominee uses fourth stop on tour to spotlight failed Bush-McConnell economic policies

LOUISVILLE – Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Bruce Lunsford continues his “On the Job” tour of Kentucky tomorrow morning in Mayfield. Lunsford will spend several hours working as a service attendant at Highway Oil located at 329 S 8th St. in Mayfield. Bruce Lunsford decided to continue his “On the Job” tour at the gas station because he wants to better understand the impact skyrocketing gas prices have on Western Kentucky families.

The trip to Mayfield comes on the heels of a similar “On the Job” last week in Richmond at the College Food Mart near Eastern Kentucky University. At the same time that McConnell was pushing the oil companies’ priorities in Washington, Lunsford met with Kentuckians face to face who told him how current gasoline prices affect their daily lives. One woman arrived in a van and put three dollars of gasoline in her tank because it was all she could afford. Bruce Lunsford believes it is time Washington put Kentucky families first, not the special interests.

This is the fourth stop on the tour Lunsford began as a Primary Election candidate. The “On the Job” tour gives Lunsford the opportunity to work side-by-side with Kentuckians across the Commonwealth, and listen to their concerns in order to better understand their needs.
