Mayor Community Conversation - District 12

Louisville – District 12 will play host to the last Mayor’s Community Conversation of 2008 at Pleasure Ridge Park High School on Monday, November 17th.
“It is always a nice to welcome the Mayor and Metro Government to the District,” says Councilman Rick Blackwell (D-12). “I want to encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to let Metro Government know what your concerns.”
The Mayor’s Community Conversation will begin at 6:30pm. Pleasure Ridge Park High School is located at 5901 Greenwood Road.
Joining Blackwell will be Council President Jim King (D-10) and Council members Judith Green (D-1), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13), Bob Henderson (D-14) and Marianne Butler (D-15).
The Councilman is combining his regular District 12 Dialogue for the month of November with the Mayor’s event.
“Metro Government is here to provide services and solve problems,” says Blackwell. “The mayor and the Council are reading to talking with anyone about an area of concern that we need to be aware of not only for Southwest Jefferson County but for all of Metro Louisville.”

  1. I think that this would be a great opportunity to start asking some very pointed questions about the sewer planning for Southwest Jefferson but also start asking very pointed questions about the direction this city is taking both economically but also various quality of life issues.

    Not to mention stating your case rationally and intelligently. Not getting caught up into some yelling match but putting every one of these guys on the spot and record it as well.

    I think all of these gatherings should be recorded that way we have the elected officials accountable to the citizenry on the issues. Not to mention that, but also to point out where they have slipped and either lied or obfuscated the facts.

  2. Agreed. Plan your questions, and act professionally. Leave the self-serving to others. Get some witnesses. Bring a friend and maybe a camera.

    Most importantly, bring some knowledge of issues, and know what you hope to accomplish, and do it because it is right for the community.

    Thanks for contributing.
