I mentioned last week that I am donating my share of a pay increase which legislators received this year, even though we did not deserve it. I have pledged each month to donate the raise to a non-profit agency which helps the people of our district. This month I had the honor of visiting and touring the Eureka Area Food Pantry which provides its services to people throughout Woodford County. I appreciate Norma Savage for showing me around and all the volunteers who work so hard to help those in need. They are making an important difference in the community.
