Brownback to visit Holton
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback will be paying a visit to Holton on Friday to talk with local small business owners, according to Holton/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce director Carolyn McKee.
Gov. Brownback will visit Penny’s Event Center at 10 a.m. Friday for an hour-long question and answer period with small business owners in the area. McKee said the governor will speak for about five minutes at the public meeting, then take questions from business owners.
“He’s really wanting to focus on small businesses,” she said.
Brownback also plans to briefly visit Heart to Home Gifts and Décor on the south side of Holton’s Town Square following the question-and-answer session.
“He wanted to look at one small business that had opened recently,” McKee said.
