Protecting Jobs an Accomplishment for Beshear

For the second straight year, it’s all about jobs for Gov. Steve Beshear. “Attracting and protecting jobs” topped the list of his most notable accomplishments in 2011, which his office released Wednesday. Beshear has released a year-end list of his top accomplishments for the past few years, said spokeswoman Kerri Richardson. “It’s a good way for us to look back and review,” Richardson said. Beshear said that, thanks to the work of the state economic development office, there was an investment of more than $2.6 billion that could lead to 13,178 jobs created or retained.
