State Officials Make Visit

Published 4:46 pm Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Batesville’s Downtown Square was busy Saturday despite and almost constant rain. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann purchased batteries from Ben Flint during the 130th anniversary sale at the hardware store. Several other state officials and candidates stopped by the store at different times of the day campaigning and congratulating the Flint family.

Tate Reeves; and Cole Flint found a dry spot under the store’s awning to talk about the state’s role in helping Batesville secure The Concourse project with Northwest. (Jeremy Weldon)
