COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The new mayor of Covington hopes he'll be
able to help cure the ills of the northern Kentucky city at the
same time the company he works for is racing to find a cure for
some types of cancer.
Charles "Chuck" Scheper, who serves as board chairman at
Bexion Pharmaceuticals, was sworn in last week as the city's 40th
mayor. He told The Kentucky Enquirer that he sees it as his mission
to succeed at both jobs (http://bit.ly/rt6by2).
Scheper takes the post after Denny Bowman resigned in September
citing disappointment with actions of other city officials and
concerns about his health.
