U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., will visit with his constituents in Pike County on Tuesday.

Shelby will be the guest speaker at the Pike County Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Breakfast.

“Throughout my time in the United States Senate, I have made it a top priority to visit all 67 counties in Alabama every year,” Shelby said in a release. “The focus of my statewide travel will be to hear from my constituents about the impact of the Obama Administration’s policies on middle class families, job creation, and economic growth. I believe these visits are an excellent opportunity for us to discuss the important issues currently facing our state and nation.”

The breakfast will be the 12th stop in his annual tour, during which he visits all 67 counties.

“We think this is an excellent opportunity for our members and for the community to hear an update from our congressman about the issues that concern us,” said Kathleen Sauer, president of the Chamber.

The breakfast begins at 8 a.m. at the Troy Country Club. Tickets are $15 for those eating breakfast and admission is free for anyone who attends but chooses not to eat.

“However, we do need everyone to make reservations,” Sauer said. “They need to call us at the Chamber by the end of the day Friday so we can hold the reservation”

The Chamber number is 334-566-2294.
