KY Forums Focus on Job Growth

Today marks the beginning of a series of public meetings organized by Kentucky's Cabinet for Economic Development to be held across the state.  The meetings will focus on a hot topic in Kentucky and across the nation: job growth and investment. The idea is to identify emerging business sectors - and gather citizen input on how best to position those businesses for success. Holly Spade, director of the Office of Legal Services for the Cabinet, says the list of forums could grow longer.

"We've been really excited about how things are going thus far. We've had a very high level of interest across the state and we may even need to expand our current schedule of forums," she said.

The meetings, which started in Gilbertsville today, will also take place at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green on Wednesday and the Lexington Convention Center Thursday.
