Driskell Appointed To Lexington Finance Post

Thanks to Alan Lytle, Kentucky Public RadioLexington Mayor Jim Gray has announced more appointments to his management staff, and they include a former Louisville Metro Government official. Jane Driskell is Lexington’s new Commissioner of Finance and Administration. She served as Chief Financial Officer during the Abramson administration in Louisville. She sees many similarities in the types of challenges Kentucky’s two largest cities face moving forward."Lower revenues than anticipated and having to adjust services to meet those revenues. We've had difficult decisions in Louisville but we've been able to do it and maintain high financial ratings by Wall Street," she said. Gray also announced appointees to head the city's Department of Social Services and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Quality.
