The White House Assisted Living facility, located at 405 Red Boiling Springs Rd. in Lafayette, will be hosting a reception in honor of current State Representative of the 40th District Terri Lynn Weaver on Thursday evening, February 2nd from 5:30 to 7 p.m.Representative Weaver, who has represented Macon County in the 40th District since the 2008 election, will no longer serve our county, which was recently redistricted into the 38th District in the new, statewide, Republican-proposed House & Senate redistricting plan.
“This is very difficult and hard for me because I’ve developed such wonderful relationships with people here,” said Rep. Weaver. “I honestly feel like I am losing family. This county and I were the right fit for each other. Macon County was the first county to embrace me and believe me - and I will never forget that.”
The 38th District, which includes Clay, Pickett, Scott and the Fentress (northern region) counties, is currently represented by Kelly Keisling. Representative Keisling will also be an honored guest at the reception event.
Representative Weaver will remain Macon County’s representative until the November 2012 election and vows to see one particular project through until its completion.
“I am very committed to seeing the Highway 10 project through until it’s completed,” she said. “It’s a project that really means a lot to me.”
While she is not looking forward to losing Macon County in the 40th district, she has a message for all of her friends here.
“District lines do not separate friendship,” she remarked. “Even when I am no longer your representative, I will still maintain my friendships here.”
“I look forward to seeing everyone at the White House event and introducing everyone to Representative Keisling, who will be representing Macon County if he’s re-elected,” said Rep. Weaver.
Those who plan on attending the meet and greet event, can stop by White House Assisted Living February 2nd anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
