“This is a great opportunity for me to meet face-to-face with everyone from Deputy Transportation Secretary John Porcari to Census Director Robert Groves and discuss with them issues affecting Louisville,” Abramson said.
The White House is sending several top officials to the meeting including urban affairs director Adolfo Carrion and drug czar Gil Kerlikowske.
