Congressman Marion Berry met with Lawrence County citizens and government officials on Tuesday afternoon to discuss issues of importance to county residents.

"My primary purpose is to hear from you and get a perspective on where we should be focusing our efforts," said Berry.

Berry discussed the new budget, which he said will allow for more funds in the areas of law enforcement, fire protection and education. He also discussed changes in administration in the U.S. and in the first district.

"The American people spoke last November," he said. "They said we don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican, we want to see change." Berry added that there are more new mayors in the first congressional district this year than there have been in his lifetime. continued...
