Kentucky’s first district, which includes Christian, Todd and Trigg counties, has joined the Tennessee Valley Corridor, a non-profit economic development organization.
This comes at the request of Congressman James Comer, who represents the first district, and the initiative seeks to leverage existing federal missions in its service area to support economic development and private sector job growth by connecting people, ideas and opportunities.
Congressman Comer says, “I’m proud to officially have the First District as part of the TVC. My constituents are committed to the continual development and prosperity of their communities and are eager to work with TVC to attract economic investment and support innovative research throughout the region.”
Government Relations Manager for the Tennessee Valley Authority Virginia Gray will serve as Comer’s representative on the TVC Board of Directors.
The First District of Kentucky boasts two major defense and energy assets that complement the TVC’s mission of advancing science and technology research and economic development—Fort Campbell and the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant.
