Question 1:

Why do you think you are the right person to represent your district on the Louisville Metro Council?

As a lifelong resident of the area known as District 1, I am carefully in touch with the issues that affect my neighborhood.  I know the people, I know the issues that need to be tackled, and I have a proven track record over the last three years of boldly representing the area.  I have held several leadership positions on Committees, evidencing my firm grasp of the issues that affect us in Louisville Metro.

Question 1:

Why do you think you are the right person to represent your district on the Louisville Metro Council?

I am the right person to represent District One on Metro Council because I’m interested in making improvements and connections in real time.  As a social worker with a Social Justice background, I recognize the importance of organizing, backwards planning, and the voice of the people.  I am interested in strengthening our district by aiding neighbors in connecting, planning, and advocating for an improved district.  I intend to encourage, support, & challenge businesses AND our community: to continue to be self-determined, but increasingly responsible for OUR community.   As councilwoman I would support funding for a variety of areas/projects, but in rotations, as to equitably address long ignored issues, such as neighborhood beautification and advocacy training.  I have plans for the district and I’m optimistic of our possibilities.  I look to gain input from community members and welcome working with those committed to moving our district forward.
