Frankfort prepares for December 10th inauguration of Gov.-elect Beshear
With Governor-Elect Andy Beshear being sworn in on Tuesday, the city of Frankfort has been making sure the stage is set for the latest transfer of power in the Commonwealth,
Beshear has said in the past that he wanted this year's events to be more accessible to the general public. This move is something Kenny Bishop, the Program Coordinator of Inauguration, noted was a major change.
"I think that's probably one of the big differences this time around is that everything all of the inaugural events, even those which in the past have been somewhat limited to the public." Bishop told WKYT, "All of them are open this time around"
His team spent the weekend testing equipment, building platforms, and generally making sure that Frankfort would be ready for Tuesday's historic inauguration.
The inauguration will have events going on all day on Tuesday, December 10th leading up to Governor-elect Beshear's official swearing-in at around 2 p.m.
He will be the Commonwealth's 63rd Governor since the State was formed back in 1792.
