After 14 years at the helm of Richmond’s Chamber of Commerce, President Mendi Goble has tenured her resignation effective end of March. Goble has officially filed to run for Richmond City Commission. Ms. Goble tells WBON TV that she is pursuing the move to a larger role in government to help effectuate changes and influence the trajectory of City Government in a positive direction she feels there is much opportunity.
The Richmond Chamber Board has launched a national search for Goble’s replacement, through the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Goble says she will continue to be part of that process and help transition her replacement. The window to apply for the job should be 1 to 2 weeks.
Mendi Goble added “It’s been an absolute honor to serve Richmond this way, to help and grow our business community. This is one the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, and I will always love the Chamber and will always be a part of the Chamber and people and the City.”
