Speaking roster revealed for upcoming Fancy Farm picnic

Posted: Updated:
FANCY FARM, KY -

The speaking order has been released for the politicians participating at this year's Fancy Farm picnic.

This year, a drawing was held for some of the speaking positions.

The office of Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Auditor, and Agriculture Commissioner were put in a hat and drawn out one-by-one. A video of the drawing is available here.

The committee says they decided to do a drawing because the offices of Treasurer, Auditor, and Agriculture Commissioner usually ended up at the end of the program, which they felt was unfair.

The program will begin as usual with the local legislators, US Senators, US Congressman, Governor, and Lieutenant Governor candidates speaking in the first half of the program.

All of the politicians on the roster have confirmed they are attending, except for Agriculture Commissioner James Comer who has not decided if he is attending yet.

The Fancy Farm picnic will be held on Saturday, August 1st. The speeches will start at 2 p.m.
