SOAR bipartisan effort seeks grass-roots input for Kentucky’s economy

Strategic plan outlined at Somerset conference

(Continued)

Another governor will be elected in 2015. To protect the coming strategic plan from political change, “We’ve got to have structural changes that are institutionalized,” said Hindman lawyer and businessman Bill Weinberg, who headed the foundation for eight years.
Beshear told the conference that he has tried to make clear that SOAR “will not be directed by Frankfort or Washington,” but he said it “needs to overcome the skepticism that greets any government-generated idea,” and that will come from “your insight, your ideas and your energy.”
