Hartzler honors Blackburn, talks pandemic

The U.S. representative met with city and county officials on Wednesday

U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler traveled to Lebanon Wednesday to speak with city leaders about how national issues are affecting the area and to honor a local hero. Hartzler met with Debbie Blackburn, widow of the late Lebanon Police Officer Kendle Blackburn and presented her with a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol. Hartzler said she also wanted to “pass along my condolences on the loss of her husband and to thank her for his service." Hartzler had heard about Blackburn, who died in December from COVID-19.
