WHO: Jim Waters, Executive Director of (BIPPS) the Bluegrass Institute for Public Policy Solutions


WHAT: Speaking on the urgent need for Kentucky to become a right-to-work state immediately


WHEN: Thursday, February 19, 2015


WHERE: Sal’s meeting rooms in the Lansdowne Shopping Center on Tates Creek Road in Lexington


Kentucky is the only southern state that is not a right-to-work state. Since we are not a right-to-work state, Kentucky continues to lose businesses that are looking for new locations in the U.S.


Do you believe it is right to force employees to pay dues to labor unions that do not represent their views or the candidates that they support? Come hear Jim Waters on February 19 as he shares with us how to help him and other groups in the fight to finally turn Kentucky into a right-to-work state.


Kentucky is too desperate for hundreds of thousands of good jobs for our state to continue pushing away these businesses looking to locate in our area. See you at Sal’s on February 19!

Kelley Paul Was a Real “Hit” at WROCK

Our January WROCK meeting was “the place to be” for all freedom-loving people! If you attended the January 8th WROCK meeting at Sal’s when Kelly Paul, wife of U.S. Senator Rand Paul, spoke about her grandmother’s migration from Ireland to America in 1929, you were struck by two very important facts.


Her grandmother’s courage and resolve to escape a life of poverty and despair in Ireland gave her the strength as a very young girl to board a ship bound for an unknown land and never look back. Two important themes were at the heart of her brave journey into an unknown world: family and work.


Kelley so beautifully describes her grandmother’s life here as a maid for wealthy families in New York City. With a life of hard work also came a wonderful family of four children to raise. Even though her life was very harsh and our nation was experiencing high unemployment, Kelley’s grandmother was never too proud to work doing whatever it took to feed and clothe her family.


Never one to brag about how far she had come in her life in America, Kelley’s grandmother always loved to tell anyone who would listen just how successful and amazing her children and grandchildren were.


The two things that our nation most needs now are protection of families in America, as well as tens of millions more working Americans…working full-time, 40-hour jobs. It’s those two values that are so deeply rooted in the very fiber of our precious America.


Kelley’s new book about her grandmother and other incredible women in American history is due out in April. Thanks so much to Kelley Paul for coming to WROCK to share this inspiring story with us first-hand.
