FRANKFORT, Ky. (November 27, 2018) – Gov. Matt Bevin and Department for Local Government Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo welcomed about 100 newly elected mayors and judge-executives to their positions on Monday during a workshop and welcome event in Frankfort.

The day consisted of sessions with cabinet members at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, followed by a welcome event at the Governor’s Mansion.

Our goal was to make Frankfort accessible.”
