FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A former state lawmaker is being given an
award for public service.
The Legislative Research Commission says it is giving the 2011
Vic Hellard Jr. Award for excellence in public service to Charles
Siler, who served twice in the Kentucky General Assembly before
retiring last year.
Siler, a Williamsburg Republican, was in the House from 1985
through 1990 and again from 1995 to 2010.
The award is named for the person who was executive director of
the LRC staff for 19 years. It has been given each year in Hellard's name since his death in 1996.
