Top executives of healthcare corporation, BrightSpring — formerly known as Rescare and PharmMerica — donated tens of thousands to Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin’s political campaign a year after Bevin’s administration approved a $500,000 state grant to help fund construction of the organization’s lavish new office headquarters.
According to a review of public filings by American Ledger, the donations from BrightSpring executives, made in February and March 2019, came just two months after BrightSpring opened the doors of it’s brand new office headquarters in Louisville.
In January 2018, Bevin’s administration awarded Rescare — which changed its name to BrightSpring later in 2018 — half a million dollars in state funding and grants to complete the construction of its new headquarters.
In total, 17 executives from the organization donated $20,000 to Bevin’s reelection campaign.
In November, Bevin is seeking reelection for Kentucky Governor. He is currently the least popular Governor in America.
