Question 1:

What skills, values, and experiences will you bring to this position? What is your vision for Metro Louisville, and how will the lives of Louisvillians be improved as a result of your time in office?

I am proud to have served the past 4 years as Metro Councilman for District 10, where I grew up and continue to live with my wife and three children. I know government and how to get things done having had the pleasure and unique experience for over 20 years of serving the public in the executive branch as well as an assistant Jefferson County Attorney. Our office commits every day to improving the quality of life of our residents. We strive to ensure timely and effective responses to address resident’s needs. I want to give my children the opportunity to stay here if they desire and make Louisville their home. In order to do that, Louisville desperately needs revenue diversification to meet the basic needs of its residents while continuing to grow. I along with my colleagues will continue to ask and plead with Frankfort to give us the basic tools in order for our city to meet those goals. Our Metro Council has the unique distinction of bringing the first major league sports franchise to Louisville when our Louisville City women join the NWSL in 2021. This decision will have a positive impact on our City for years.

Question 1:

I grew up in rural Western KY and moved to attend U of L. I studied law and urban planning at the graduate level and am a practicing attorney. I have volunteered countless hours as a grassroots activist. I am proud to have worked with JCKFTC on the Vision Smoketown report and People’s Guide to the Budget. I served on the KFTC steering and executive committee, and represented KFTC on the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee. I have knocked on thousands of doors during my run for Mayor, in which I earned 12,000 votes, and a couple thousand more to date in this race. I’ve listened to every single person who was willing to talk to me and have formed my platform based on working class priorities identified by voters. My experience has taught me leaders have to listen to make the right decision. I want to make sure city hall is hearing our communities’ lived experiences. My education and grassroots experience will inform how I make decisions as a Metro Council Representative.
