Flourette “Flo” Ketner is a senatorial candidate for the 19th District of Virginia, which includes Floyd as well as many other parts of the New River Valley and Roanoke.
Flo has lived in the New River Valley with her family for 30 years, and currently serves as part of the board of a new non-profit organization, the Cayambis Institute of Latin American Studies in Music.
Ketner hopes to make positive impacts on rural Virginia’s transportation infrastructure, protecting the environment, healthcare access & substance abuse, and many more.
She is coming to FloydPRIDE to speak at the Farmer’s Market Pavilion and answer any questions those from the New River Valley have about her platform and goals!
You can learn more about Flo Ketner’s campaign, history, and beliefs at her website. The Senate election will be on November 5th, 2019.
