Franklin County Judge/Executive Huston Wells alongside Mayor Bill May welcomed Governor Matt Bevin and his family to their new home in Franklin County. Judge Wells continued the longstanding tradition of delivering a cake a white cake with white icing on a silver platter. This event occurred early yesterday morning at the Governor’s Mansion. Frankfort residents Phyllis and Joe Vincent presented the Governor with stone beaten biscuits and country ham. Mayor Bill May presented a Paul Sawyier print to the first family. This tradition dates back over 100 years when the outgoing first lady would leave these food items on a table in the mansion for the incoming Governor and his family. By the 1950’s the residents of Frankfort had taken over this responsibility to welcome the newly elected Governor to the capital city.
Also in attendance Tuesday morning was Squire Michael Turner who represents the 1st district in which the Governor’s mansion resides. Other Frankfort residents attending this event included Gregg and Cathy Polly and Paul and Nan Harnice with their sons Will and John. Commissioner Robert Roach also joined the Mayor in representing the City.
