Lexington & Louisville Team Up

At the 2011 Leadership Louisville luncheon at the Galt House East on Thursday, the mayors of Lexington and Louisville went before more than 1,000 leaders to pitch their vision for a regional economic development initiative to improve the cities' competitiveness in advanced manufacturing. Mayors Jim Gray and Greg Fischer pointed to the Toyota plant in Georgetown and the Ford and GE plants in Louisville as evidence that the state's two largest urban areas already are a center of advanced manufacturing, but it can do more.
