Co-chair of prison effort here says sudden delay will not end project

Letter to the Editor:

To the Editor:

Our people, especially our young people, need jobs — good paying jobs.

Even with the withdrawal of the Record of Decision, the Federal Bureau of Prisons is continuing to work toward the construction of the Letcher County Federal Prison. Congressman Hal Rogers and Senator Mitch McConnell continue to work toward the construction of this project. Their support has been a great blessing.

The Letcher County Planning Commission continues to move this project forward. This current delay, like several before it, is not expected to end the project.

ELWOOD CORNETT
Co-Chair
Letcher County Planning
Commission
