Officials from Trigg, Christian and Todd counties and Hopkinsville Community College announced the formation of the Southern Pennyrile Chamber Alliance at a press conference last Wednesday morning at the HCC auditorium.

The group touted six of their top lobbying priorities at the conference, and three of those propose improvements to the U.S. 68/Ky. 80 corridor throughout the three counties.

Carter Hendrix of the Christian County Chamber of Commerce, who filled in for Christian County Judge Executive Steve Tribble, said they’ve been working together for roughly the past 16 months. Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries, HCC President Jim Selbe and Todd County Judge Executive Daryl Greenfield were also on-hand to talk about the partnership.

Selbe said the group has 18 members currently, and went on to state that a greater emphasis in regionalism has been a trend at many levels of government in recent times, and for good reason.

“When you take a piece of string, and you start binding it with other pieces of string, together it becomes stronger,” Selbe said. “And what we’re attempting to do here is create an effort that will make our advocacy efforts stronger.”
