Dave Adkisson spoke at the Rooster Booster breakfast. Right now, he is the president of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
He's in town talking about the group's priorities for the upcoming General Assembly. Adkisson says he's been impressed with the recent development across the city.
"We made some progress in the 1990's," said Adkisson, "as we were developing the Performing Arts Center, the community college, and a bridge. Now, they're taking it to a whole new level. The new convention center, two new hotels, riverfront development."
As for the state chamber's priorities, he says education and the state budget are two of the most important items on their agenda.
