Meet the Councilmembers: Jennifer Chappell

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 Louisville Metro Council to help our investors learn a bit more about their background and priorities. GLI is a non-partisan agency, and these posts are for educational purposes only.

  • Making impactful infrastructure improvements as it relates to our roadways, public transit, parks, etc.
  • Curbing our animal crisis and supporting a pathway to no-kill status at our city shelter

What role can the business community play in helping Louisville grow?
