Youngest female state rep in state history takes office

As the time grew near for Samara Heavrin’s oath of office ceremony Monday, the lobby of the Grayson County Gov­ern­ment Annex began to fill with well wishers. To accommodate the guests, tables were removed from the fiscal court meeting room and chairs rearranged in neat rows. The 27-year-old Re­pub­li­can, who becomes the young­est woman ever to serve in the Kentucky General Assem­bly, shared the spotlight with her parents, Ray and Monica Heavrin, as they each rested a hand on a Bible given to Sa­mara by her late grandmother, Barbara Bishop.
