A former US senator is to give a talk in Dornoch on his career and views on life.

Dornoch and District Fellowship is hosting An Evening with Timothy Philpot on Sunday at the town’s social club. Mr Philpot, of Lexington, Kentucky, is a keen golfer and a frequent visitor to the town.

Fellowship pastor Grant Fairns said: “Mr Philpot has had an illustrious career and we are delighted he has agreed to talk about his experiences.”

A trial lawyer for more than 26 years, he specialised in employment, family and civil rights cases. From 1991 to 1998 he served two terms in the Kentucky State Senate, where he took a strong stand on ethics and became known as a ‘man with a conscience’.

He put his legal career on hold from 1997 to 2003 to lead CBMC International, a ministry to business and professional people. From January 2004 until his retirement in 2017, he served as a judge of the Fayette Circuit Family Court.

Mr Philpot has written two books, a memoir of his father; and a novel about the death of marriage in America. He now speaks on legal and cultural issues related to family, marriage and divorce. He is married to Susan, a nurse. The free talk begins at 6pm and a light meal will be served. Email: info@ddcf.org.uk
