Vote on Tuesday, November 5!


We’re in the home stretch of campaigns to elect Kentucky’s Governor/ Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Auditor and Commissioner of Agriculture.  Election Day is Tuesday, November 5. Under Kentucky law, that’s when most of us can vote, at the precinct where we are registered, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  You can check your registration and find that precinct at https://vrsws.sos.ky.gov/ovrweb/govoteky.  Do it now and make a plan to vote! This election is too important to sit out.

On November 5, anyone boarding one of TARC's 223 buses who asks, "May I Ride to Vote?" will get Fare-Free service to their polling location. 

If you will be out of Jefferson County on Election Day, there is one more opportunity to vote absentee. In-person absentee voting will be open at 701 West Ormsby, TODAY, Monday, November 4, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Absentee voting information is here.

Exercise your right to vote for these important Kentucky offices this fall !

Let’s Turn On Lights for Daylight Savings Time


Yesterday, Sunday, November 3, marked the end of Daylight Savings Time. I know you have already turned back your clocks. Also, don’t forget to reset lighting timers, thermostats, security systems and other clocks in your household. It’s also a great time to check all smoke alarms.

The time change will bring more light to your morning, but now the evenings will get darker earlier. This is a perfect opportunity to look at all streetlights in your area and report outages!

Streetlight outages are reported directly to LG&E. You can report them online at https://lge-ku.com/outages/report/streetlight, or you can contact my office to report them at 574-1109 or email Bill Hollander. If you email my office, please include the nearest address and description of the issue. Repairs are made by LG&E within seven days. If the repair hasn’t occurred within seven days, please contact me, since there might be a larger electric issue to report for the light.

My office is working to track all D9 streetlight outages and get repairs made.  If you report an outage over the next few weeks, please send an email to my office so we know the report has been made. Let’s see how many lights we can turn back on by the end of 2019!

One more thing. LMPD advises everyone to illuminate their property at night. Leave outside lights on, check lights regularly and replace burnt out bulbs.
