Teamwork is key to the success of Lincoln County’s Legislative Appreciation Day, a tradition that has continued for more than three decades now.
“It’s a great day for Lincoln County,” County Mayor Bill Newman said of Legislative Appreciation Day, more commonly known as Hamburger Day on the Hill. “Not only do we get to develop relationships with our senators, representatives and commissioners, but with the staff who really get the hard work done. They know about Lincoln County, and when Lincoln County actually needs help, they remember us. It really develops relationships that are very broad based.
“Our Chamber, city and county and school systems do a wonderful job, and our Lincoln County Livestock Association does a wonderful job,” he added. “It’s a real team effort to get it done. It might be happening in Nashville, but it’s a team effort that begins here.”
