The Next Mayor

- The Courier Journal's political writer Joe Gerth penned a brief but excellent article yesterday in which he laid out possible candidates for Louisville's 2010 race for mayor. Gerth says that by 2010 Abramson may have turned his attention toward the Lt. Governor's position, leaving the mayoral race wide open. I believe Abramson will avoid a statewide race and return to the private sector, where he will reap the rewards of over 20 years of nest-feathering. Either way, Jerry is on his way out of office. So with that behind us, I give you my early pick for Louisville Mayor 2010.

Back in March, I wrote about Tyler Allen of 8664. Even if you don't agree with him (I do), you are forced to admit he has quite a grand vision for all of Louisville. He's upbeat in a realistic way. He's personable. He's a natural leader. He's tough and true to the things he believes in. These are the reasons I was pleased to see Allen's name mentioned in Gerth's CJ article as a *possible* candidate. I hope Tyler Allen gets in the ring. Our city will be better for it.

- Reminder: The 9 year old Prairie Village All Star Team will begin playing districts soon. You can help support them by eating dinner at Beef O'Brady's on Valley Station Road Monday July 6 from 4PM to 8PM. Rick Totten, the restaurant owner, says that he wants to help the players who will be representing our community. The restaurant will donate a percentage of all sales from 4PM to 8PM to the 9 year old All-Star Team. All proceeds will help offset the costs associated with the All-Star Games.
