Louisville and Lexington mayors to kick off Business Summit
On Monday, July 16 at 1:30 p.m. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray will get the Business Summit started when they co-present Kentucky’s Two Largest Cities: Are We Ready to Compete with Other Cities Across America? During his two years in office, Mayor Fischer has pursued three top goals: making Louisville a city of lifelong learning, a much healthier city and an even more compassionate community, while also taking action to bring innovation to city government and make it more efficient and accessible. Jim Gray’s vision as mayor of Lexington is to build the next “great American city.” Gray has brought a businessman’s approach to city government by creating strong financial and operational management systems and by making strategic investments in planning and development initiatives across the city.
