Who would you pick?

The close of business today was the deadline for applicants to fill the position vacated on the Louisville Metro Council when 1st District Democrat Dr. Judy Green was removed from office by a unanimous vote by the Council.  At 5:00 there were a total of 16 applicants received at City Hall for the position.

“I commend those who are interested in serving the people of District 1,” says Metro Council President Jim King (Dem., 10th Dist.). “Public service is a great and rewarding responsibility and these applicants are offering themselves as a way to make a difference in Metro Louisville.”

Here are the applicants for District 1:

  • Ray A Barker Sr.
  • Attica Woodson ScottCity Hall2.jpg
  • Janis Carter Miller
  • Alan D. Benson
  • Eric Irvin Sr.
  • Rosa G. Macklin
  • Edna L. Harris
  • Courtney L. Phelps
  • Thomas K. Recktenwald
  • Ameerah Z. Granger
  • CheRhonda Greenlee
  • James R. Ponder
  • Steven D. Colston
  • Connell Devon Stokes
  • Eddie Davis
  • Donovan C. Taylor

The applications will be reviewed by the Jefferson County Attorney’s office to ensure the qualifications for office are met. Council President Jim King will then call a special meeting to interview those who have applied. After those interviews, the Council will select a person to fill the vacancy.

“We will be very thorough in this process,” says King. “The Council will give these applicants the opportunity to tell us their vision and goals for District 1. From there we will select the person who will do the best job.”

As a special service to readers of louisville.com, we have opened our own little polling place—for the next 48 hours—to give you a chance to make your selection from among the candidates.  For most of you, it’s as close as you will ever come to actually having a say in who gets to fill Judy Green’s small shoes.
