On Thursday, Sen. Whitney Westerfield was presented the Chamber MVP Award by Kentucky Chamber incoming President and CEO Ashli Watts. Westerfield 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. Westerfield has shown strong leadership to help move our state forward,” said Watts. “We especially thank Sen. Westerfield this session for sponsoring legislation to strengthen laws on driving under the influence, which is an important issue to many Kentucky Chamber members.”
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.
