As summer winds down the committee meetings are picking up. I will be attending the Legislative Council meeting in Little Rock on Friday and head back on Monday for Joint Retirement at 1:30. I'll stay over for a Public Health meeting on Tuesday and then it's back home for work on Wednesday and Thursday. Next Friday will put me in Hot Springs for an Aging, Children and Youth, Legislative and Military Affairs meeting. I'm very fortunate to be able to work around the goings on at the Capitol and continue to fulfill my obligations with the Juvenile Court. I enjoy both jobs.
I should mention that I, along with the other Democratic legislators, have been invited to meet with Senator Hillary Clinton on Monday afternoon. The meeting will take place at 4 p.m. in the Association of Counties building and this will be my first time to meet the former First Lady and current New York Senator. I look forward to hearing what she has to say, and hopefully she will field some of our questions in the process. I will let you know what transpires.
