Chamber Officials Spend "Day on the Hill"

The Advocacy and Transportation Committee of the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce has now spent a day with Tennessee State Legislators to receive updates and to promote Putnam County, the Highlands and the Upper Cumberland region. The day-long "Day on the Hill" visit began with a meeting with Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey. Meetings were also held with State Senator Charlotte Burks, and Representatives Charles Curtis, Henry Fincher and John Mark Windle. Dr. Steve Copeland, chair of the Chamber's Advocacy and Transporation committee, said, "This was an opportunity for our committee members to talk one-on-one with legislators about programs and projects that directly benefit Putnam County and the Upper Cumberland Region."
