U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) welcomes Andrea Begley, a life-long resident of Leslie County, as his new Field Representative for the Kentucky River area. Begley is based in Rogers' district office in Hazard, Kentucky and now serves Breathitt, Knott, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Owsley and Perry Counties.

"As a native of Leslie County, Andrea knows, first-hand, the challenges we face, as well as the successes that we need to build upon," said Congressman Rogers. "Her experience in the public and private sectors will be beneficial to local families, business owners and local leaders. I am confident she will serve the people of this region with the utmost integrity."

Begley brings a wealth of experience to the Rogers' team as both a private, small-business owner and former county employee. She is a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science with a minor in Public Administration.

"As I dropped off my six-year-old daughter for her first day of school, she asked what inspired me to take my new job. My immediate response, 'the opportunity to help people in Eastern Kentucky!'" said Begley. "Congressman Rogers has worked tirelessly for Eastern Kentucky and I am honored to be able to work for him in his efforts to improve the opportunities available in the region now and for our future generations."
Begley joins Rogers' staff as Field Representative Nick Camic leaves his post to attend graduate school. Begley will be working along-side Field Representatives Carlos Cameron and Adam Rice.

Begley lives in Leslie County with her husband Tate and their two children. 
She can be reached in the Hazard office at 606-439-0794 or
