“The next generation is really why we’re here today…the riverfront is the one common neighborhood for everyone in this area…the one neighborhood that everyone shares is the river, because after all, that is how Paducah got here. This great old river is replete with history of the United States of America; it brought the pioneers and then brought the commerce as the most important inland waterway of America. The reason we’re here in the first place is this wonderful, magnificent, river. I want to help this community enhance the river experience so that this one common neighborhood that everyone shares will be a place to come and enjoy yourself for years and years to come...and over the next few years, I hope to help you realize your aspirations for your riverfront.”
The Citizens of Paducah want to thank you Senator Mitch McConnell
For your continued support of the redevelopment of our Riverfront.
