City-County Observer event Chairman Steve Hammer stated “that our “Monthly Speaker Series” luncheon focuses on homegrown businesses and politically successful individuals. Mr. Hammer says; The CCO MONTHLY SPEAKERS SERIES luncheon features unique and insightful stories of success and perseverance from prominent community leaders that tend to fly under the public radar.”   “We understand that there are a lot of successful entrepreneurs and political leaders who, because of economic, technological, or political challenges, have experienced a negative impact through their careers”

Event sponsors are County Commissioner Ben Shoulders and his wife Shannon Shoulders.  Commissioner Shoulders said; “The CCO “Speaker Series” has turned out to be a great resource for locally owned and developing businesses and elected officials.”  We are extremely pleased to announce that the extremely popular Vanderburgh County Sheriff Noah Robinson will be our guest speaker at the September 27, 2023 luncheon event at Evansville.  This event is full.
