Don McNay has a piece on the Huffington Post (h/t B&P) about the next generation of Kentucky leadership. Louisville attorney and developer Craig Greenberg is listed among the new class. Greenberg was rumored to be considering a bid for mayor last year, but is now occupied with the Museum Plaza project.
Like Greenberg, many of the names are of people who have not held political office. Republican state representative Bill Farmer, of Lexington, thought that Bill Samuels Jr., President of Maker’s Mark Distillery, and Bill Farish, son of the Ambassador to England, might be potential candidates.
Former Secretary of State Bob Babbage mentioned several people, including Adam Edelen, who is running for State Auditor, a position Babbage once held. Babbage and several others touted former Kentucky Democratic Party chair, Jennifer Moore, who is a Louisville trial lawyer.
John Y. Brown III noted Luther Deaton, the CEO of Central Bank in Lexington.
