The Pike County Chamber of Commerce will be continuing their Third Thursday Breakfast Seminar Series on March 21, 2013 with the topic of "Gas Lines in Pike County", understanding the needs, pressure and the strategy of locating gas lines, with Guest Speaker Mr. Allen Fore, the Director of Public Affairs for Kinder Morgan.
There has been much discussion about gas lines in Pike County. Issues relating to the National Park, residential areas and schools are just a few concerns that have been voiced by elected officials and private citizens alike.
The Tennessee Pipeline, which supplies many areas of the country with plentiful and inexpensive energy, is owned by Kinder Morgan Corporation. They are often asked to adjudicate numerous concerns of many, often conflicting, interest groups. Our seminar will look at the pressures, options and strategies that make those often difficult decisions workable.
Our featured speaker will be Allen Fore, the Director of Public Affairs for Kinder Morgan. Allen has more than 25 years of experience in law, government, public affairs and public relations at the local, state, and national levels. At Kinder Morgan, Allen manages public affairs, government relations, and community relations activities for existing company assets and major expansion projects. Before joining Kinder Morgan, Mr. Fore was a Senior Vice President at Fleishman-Hillard, an international communications company. Mr. Fore has served in the Bush Administration and was an assistant attorney general of Illinois and general counsel to the lieutenant governor of Illinois. Mr. Fore was a Ronald W.
