Tomi Jean Clifford
I am Tomi Jean Clifford, the executive director of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce. I recently accepted this position in September 2015, and I am excited to be a part of such a great organization.
First off, a little information about myself.. I grew up here in Cynthiana and attended First United Methodist Church growing up. I graduated from Harrison County High School in 2002 and attended Eastern Kentucky University and Maysville Community College as well. My Grandparents are Fred and Joann Pensinger, who were one of the first families to move here with 3M and start the company here, and Bonny and Norma Dailey, who owned several small businesses here in Cynthiana, but are most well known for The Village Inn and Bonny’s Salt Risen Bread. My parents, Tom and Teresa Dailey, own Dailey’s Body Shop here in town, and my husband, CJ Clifford, owns his own Snap-On tool franchise. Business has always played an important role in my life.
I have also been involved and organized several community events before my start as the director. The Annual Community Water Day event that is held each year at Flat Run Veteran’s Park, The Maiden City Pursuit and most recently Artoberfest were all created as a way to encourage progress, community involvement and support of local businesses.
