A group of Christian, Todd and Trigg County leaders recently traveled to Frankfort to advocate on behalf of the Southern Pennyrile Chamber Alliance
The Judge-Executives from all three counties, officials from the local Chamber of Commerce, mayors and business executives were among the contingent meeting with lawmakers and Governor Steve Beshear.
Christian County Judge-Executive Steve Tribble says they pushed many of the projects that have been on their wish list for some time.
Judge Tribble says they were well received and Governor Beshear commended them for a regional approach.
The Judge says they were also able to thank officials in Frankfort for some success stories, including the elevation of the speed limit on U.S. 68-80 in the three counties.
