Fischer Tours U of L

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Mayor Greg Fischer got his first up close and personal look at the University of Louisville Monday, courtesy of President James Ramsey. Ramsey and Provost Shirley Willihnghanz gave the new mayor and several members of his administration a guided tour of the school.

After touring the Shumaker Research Building, and getting a look at the facility's state-of-the-art "clean room,"  Mayor Fischer said, "You're selling the University of Louisville along with Louisville" when courting prospective companies.

Dr. Ramsey agreed, adding that the University of Louisville is one of the primary economic engines driving Kentuckiana, and must be included in any discussion about job development.
