Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says the state of the city is strong.
Speaking at the State of the Community Vision Plan Breakfast at the Bruce Center, Mayor Kemp said Hopkinsville is headed in the right direction.
While the country struggles through an ongoing recession, Mayor Kemp says 928 jobs were created in Hopkinsville in the last 12 months.
Going back farther than recent history, the mayor said the number of businesses in the city has grown by a fifth since the beginning of the century.
Christian County Cares Chairman David Ptaszek also addressed the crowd and asked them to support the vision plan with both their time and money, saying good things are happening in Hopkinsville and Christian County thanks to the efforts of many.
