​​​LEGISLATIVE CANDIDATE FORUM: CANCELLED

Covid-19 and Community Meetings

According to the Center for Disease Control, (CDC) currently no vaccine exists to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).  Authorities advise that the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.


Given the highly contagious nature of this virus, Together Frankfort, on March 9, 2020, established a team to develop protocols on deciding when and if our organization will hold future gatherings.  On Thursday, March 19, Governor Andy Beshear issued an executive order banning all mass gatherings, including civic events.  Based on the order, Together Frankfort has cancelled all previously announced meetings. 


Once the ban on mass gatherings has been lifted, we will announce our plans for additional forums and meetings.

On March 16, Secretary of State Michael G. Adams formally recommended to Governor Andy Beshear that the elections scheduled for May 19, 2020 be delayed to June 23, 2020.
