Meet the councilmembers: President Markus Winkler

GLI engages in advocacy at all levels of government, but works especially closely with local government to ensure a business-friendly environment. Over the next few months, we will highlight members of the Louisville Metro Council to help our investors learn a bit more about their backgrounds and priorities. GLI is a non-partisan agency, and these posts are for educational purposes only.
