United States Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, will address the crowd of business and community leaders this Thursday, May 3 at the monthly Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce Rooster Booster. Graduates of the 2018 Leadership Owensboro class will also be introduced.
“Secretary Chao has been a great friend to Owensboro and to Western Kentucky. She and her top-rate staff have counseled our community infrastructure teams on project funding and financing.” said Candance Castlen Brake, President and CEO of the Chamber.
“Recently a group of elected and business leaders visited Washington DC to discuss community projects. Many of our projects lie within the realm of transportation. From the Riverport and Airport to our key road projects, our community is very reliant on infrastructure upgrades, improvements and innovations. Secretary Chao understands this. Our former Chamber Board Chair and now Secretary Chao’s staff member, J. Todd Inman has been instrumental in Secretary Chao speaking to our Rooster Booster breakfast. Mr. Inman knows firsthand what an impactful venue Rooster Booster is. We are so grateful she has made time in her extremely busy schedule to speak.”
