Gov. Bevin to Make Multiple Stops in NKY on Wednesday

Governor Matt Bevin will make multiple stops across Northern Kentucky on Wednesday as he pushes for his proposed reforms to the state's pension system.

Bevin will speak to the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce as part of the organization's government forum. Following a 12:30 p.m. lunch, Bevin is scheduled to speak at 1 p.m.

The event is set to take place at Receptions in Erlanger and the governor is expected to discuss his proposed changes to the state's ailing pension system, and a possibe special session of the General Assembly that may be called to address it.

Following that, Bevin will head to Covington to join CTI Clinical Trial & Consulting Services at 3 p.m. for a ribbon-cutting at its new RiverCenter headquarters.

The company decided to relocate to RiverCenter last year, and it now occupies eight renovated floors in one of the towers. Bevin will be joined by CTI CEO Tim Schroeder, Corporex chairman Bill Butler, Kenton Co. Judge/Executive Kris Knochelmann, and Northern Kentucky Tri-ED CEO Dan Tobergte.

"We are thrilled to welcome Governor Bevin to our new office," said Schroeder. "We have been working with the governor and his office on this project for more than a year, and we are very pleased to have them with us as we celebrate the grand opening of our new headquarters at RiverCenter Towers."

CTI relocated from Blue Ash, Oh., starting in February of this year.

"Our new location is a perfect fit for our team," said Schroeder. "We needed a place that would provide enough space for our growing team in the Greater Cincinnati Area, had the technological capabilities to support global communication and collaboration, and would be convenient for our sponsors who fly in from around the world on a regular basis. RiverCenter Towers offered solutions for all of those needs and more."

After the CTI ribbon-cutting, Bevin is expected to visit Brighton Recovery Center in Florence at 4:14 p.m.
