We are part of your community. We know you have several concerns from jobs to air travel to river traffic to roads. That’s why WPSD Local 6 is following the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce for its annual D.C. Fly-in. Paducah city leaders, western Kentucky elected officials, and members of the Chamber will go to Washington, D.C., to advocate for projects that affect your family.

We will be right there with them.

The group will discuss community priorities, infrastructure projects and other related issues with a wide variety of people.

News Anchor Todd Faulkner and Photojournalist Chad Darnall will travel with the Chamber and report on conversations and follow up with your questions.

Our coverage begins September 11. You can follow Todd’s trip on his Facebook and Twitter pages for constant updates.  You can also find his posts on social media by searching #wpsd or #dcflyin.
