On Monday, Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson and Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ashli Watts presented Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer with the Chamber MVP Award. Thayer was among a select group of legislators who “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2019 Kentucky General Assembly.
“During this legislative session and throughout his time in office Sen. Thayer has shown strong leadership by addressing key business issues to help move our state forward,” said Adkisson. “We thank Leader Thayer for working closely with the Kentucky Chamber this year to ensure the passage of several tax ‘fixes’ important to the business community.”
In addition to monitoring the progress of bills that create a better business climate and advance the Commonwealth, the Chamber tracks how each legislator votes on these bills. The Chamber’s MVP award recipients displayed more than just a business-friendly voting record, but also went out of their way, and at times across party lines, to support or oppose an issue critical to the business climate in Kentucky.
