Congratulations to our good friend Andy Barr, who was sworn into Congress today for Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District! Andy will serve on the House Committee on Financial Services. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Andy over the past thirteen years and attended his wedding to the lovely Eleanor “Carol” Leavell. We spent last New Year’s Eve with them in Atlanta and we are thrilled that as we embark upon this New Year, he is sworn in as one of the newest Congressmen. No matter what your political beliefs, it’s always exciting to see a friend achieve his goals and dreams!
