LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Aug. 15, 2012) — Now in its third year, Greater Louisville Inc.’s Legislative Appreciation dinner provides an opportunity for business leaders from across the region to hear from one of the nation’s leading political authorities and honor Jefferson County’s elected officials.
The guest speaker for the Sept. 26 event will be Mark Halperin, editor-at-large and senior political analyst for “TIME,” covering politics, elections and government for the magazine and TIME.com.
