LOUISVILLE — Lieutenant Governor-elect Jerry Abramson is pledging that he’ll be the most active person to hold that office in decades.
Abramson, speaking to the media after participating in a pep rally for high school students preparing for college, said he plans to focus on two main areas during his term, economic development and education.
And he said he’ll be very active in tackling those areas of state government.
As part of that “active” schedule, Abramson said he’ll be part of a team of people who help Gov. Steve Beshear craft the next two-year budget and correspond with the General Assembly.
Abramson said he wouldn’t be the point man for those two things, but will be heavily involved.
And Abramson also said he won’t be taking a second position as a cabinet secretary during Beshear’s last term in order to have flexibility in his projects.
