Early Voting Underway - Make a Plan to Vote!

Election Day

This is a different kind of election. You won’t be able to just show up at your regular polling place on November 3.  In fact, there are no Election Day polling locations in District 9.  There are plenty of opportunities to vote but you must make a plan. Please remember to turn your ballot over to vote on all issues.


If you requested an absentee ballot, you can drop it off or mail it. To ensure all votes are counted, absentee ballots are required to be postmarked by Election Day, November 3, and received by November 6. For those concerned about postal delays, individuals who don’t want to return their ballots through the mail may place them in secure drop-off boxes, which are located at every early voting site and will be at every Election Day polling location.  Ballots may also be dropped off at the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office at 701 West Ormsby Avenue, every weekday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, now through Election Day.    

To make sure your absentee ballot is counted, it is very important to follow all instructions, including signature and envelope rules.  Information about how to complete your absentee ballot is in this video. You’re encouraged to return your ballot as soon as possible so election officials can contact you in the event you made an error that can be corrected to make your vote count. 

Once you request a mail-in ballot, you will not be allowed to vote in person unless you fail to receive your mail-in ballot by October 28, 2020 or you lost your ballot. If you didn’t get a ballot or lost it, you can vote in-person at any in-person voting site. To check the status of your absentee ballot, you can visit  https://vrsws.sos.ky.gov/vic/. If you have any questions, call the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office at 502-574-6100.

Police Reform Efforts Continue

LMPD vehicle

Civilian Oversight Ordinance Filed

The tragic death of Breonna Taylor has increased calls for policy changes and for more oversight of LMPD.  I have long thought that more meaningful civilian review of LMPD is needed and am proud to be a sponsor of an ordinance that would create a new civilian oversight system.

In May 2000, the Louisville Board of Alderman passed Ordinance 48, Series 2000, establishing a Louisville Civilian Review Authority, an eleven member body whose purpose was to review allegations of police misconduct including: use of excessive force, inappropriate language, harassment, discrimination, theft, and failure to provide adequate or timely police protection.  All Louisville ordinances expired after merger occurred and the Louisville Metro Council never acted on meaningful civilian review, instead creating a “Citizen Commission on Police Accountability” which has generally been viewed as ineffective because of ordinance provisions.

In the last few months, a broad-based civilian work group has studied a variety of issues regarding civilian oversight systems. The ordinance filed this week creates a Civilian Review and Accountability Board and an Officer of Inspector General, to support the work of the board and to conduct its own, independent investigations.  I was one of four Metro Council members serving on the work group, which was chaired by Councilwoman Paula McCraney and Deputy Mayor Ellen Hesen. 

Civilian oversight can help hold police accountable and that can help develop trust with local residents.  That should be the goal of everyone, including the police officers who are on our streets doing a very difficult job every day.

Anticipating prompt approval of a civilian oversight system, Metro Council funded it in the budget we passed in June, appropriating over $750,000 to the effort. Work group materials and more information is here.  The ordinance draft is here.

FOP Contract Under Review


Metro Council’s review of a new contract for LMPD police officers and sergeants, called for by Metro ordinance, was supposed to continue with answers to a series of questions, a hearing on November 2 at 3:00 p.m., and ultimately a Metro Council vote.  Many of you have contacted me with your thoughts on the contract and the need for reform. The business community has also stressed the importance of the issue, with GLI President and CEO Sarah Davasher-Wisdom writing that “we recognize the need to rebuild trust between law enforcement and the community”, which “must involve … a robust discussion around the city’s collective bargaining agreement with law enforcement”. (The full article is here).

The contract was negotiated by the administration and the River City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #614 and presented to Metro Council for approval earlier this month.  Unfortunately,  this week the FOP took the position that state law prohibits Metro Council involvement in the contract process, that the contract signed by the Mayor’s representative is binding and effective, and that Metro Council approval is “not necessary, or even appropriate.”

What that does to the Metro Council review has not been determined at this time. 

I fully support the pay increases in the contract, to fairly compensate officers, help recruitment efforts and stem losses of experienced officers, but remain very disappointed that the contract continues to include many provisions which make it harder to hold police accountable and provide transparency in police operations. 

Criminal justice scholars have long argued that police departments’ internal disciplinary procedures, often established through the collective bargaining process, can serve as barriers to officer accountability.  A Duke Law Journal article made that point three years ago, citing research more than eight years old. Louisville is one of the few cities in the country in which the police union contract includes provisions in all six categories which police reform activists and experts who study contracts find problematic (https://www.checkthepolice.org/#review). None of those provisions have been removed in the new contract.  WDRB recently reported on the contract and my concerns. Click here for the story.  

The Metro Council resolution and the proposed contract can be found here.

Although the new contract is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021, it will likely remain in effect long after that, because Metro labor agreements are routinely extended. Without “a robust discussion around the city’s collective bargaining agreement with law enforcement”, it will be difficult to rebuild the trust upon which effective law enforcement depends.

LMPD Top-to-Bottom Review Survey


Hillard Heintze, the Chicago-based company conducting the top-to-bottom review of the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD), is seeking input through two anonymous surveys aimed at gathering perspectives from community members and LMPD employees.

The two web-based surveys are accessible through Tuesday, October 27 at 11:45 p.m., EDT. The community survey is open to all Louisville residents, seeking to understand the broader community’s perspective on the role of police personnel, police management and community relations in Louisville. The survey continues the community feedback portion of the Hillard Heintze review, which has also included open sessions to inform community members about the review process and ongoing conversations with representatives of various community groups and organizations.

A separate survey of LMPD employees measures the employees’ attitudes, opinions and experiences. Consultants at Hillard Heintze will manage the intake and analysis of all survey data. The city will not collect, view or retain any of the survey data.

The community can participate in the survey by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LMPDcommunitysurvey. You can also call (312) 869-8500 to be assigned a representative who will schedule a time for the interview.

Residents who have questions or want to weigh in further about the ongoing review of LMPD can email Hillard Heintze at LMKY@hillardheintze.com.

Help Make Land Development More Equitable


Your feedback and suggestions are needed as Louisville Metro conducts a full-scale review of the Land Development Code (LDC) to identify and correct inequitable land use regulations and policies within the code.

The LDC is a set of rules that regulates development and what can be done with private property. Many elements within the LDC have not been revised since the early 1960s and continue to incorporate discriminatory policies first introduced in 1931.

The community meetings will be held:

  • Saturday, October 24 at 10 a.m.
  • Monday, October 26 at 10 a.m.
  • Tuesday, October 27 at 6 p.m.

Residents can watch and submit comments or questions via Facebook Live on the Develop Louisville page, or via WebEx online or by phone. For details about how to attend the different meetings, visit https://louisvilleky.gov/ldcreform. Those who cannot attend one of the three meetings can ask questions or submit comments by emailing LDCreform@louisvilleky.gov or calling the LDC reform hotline at (502) 574-4737.

The review is the continuation of a process that started with the adoption of our 20-year comprehensive plan, Plan 2040, in 2018 and the release of the Housing Needs Assessment and Advancing Equity Report in early 2019. These documents laid the groundwork by identifying deficiencies, potential actions and what we want Louisville to be.

Metro Council passed a resolution on August 20 requesting the LDC review and the drafting of recommendations for more equitable and inclusive development. Louisville Metro Planning and Design Services staff is leading the review effort.

Following the meetings, Planning and Design Services staff will draft a list of recommended policy changes and amendments to the LDC, which will be reviewed by the Planning Commission, Metro Council and other legislative bodies that have zoning authority in Jefferson County. Before any recommendations are adopted, the Planning Commission will host a public hearing for residents to provide additional comments.

While some recommendations may go before the Planning Commission for consideration within a few months, the process will continue well beyond that with additional recommendations possibly being made over the next couple of years.

Frankfort Avenue Sidewalk Construction

Frankfort Ave Sidewalk

Last Sunday, I spotted two gentlemen walking along Frankfort Avenue.  They were in the street because there is no sidewalk between River Road and Story Avenue. 

Work to change that is underway. 

Several years ago, money was allocated for a sidewalk plan. This week, construction began.  The sidewalk will run along the northeast side of Frankfort Avenue to provide safe pedestrian access along this very busy road. 

Frankfort Avenue sidewalk

The project is a partnership between Louisville Metro Government and Waterfront Botanical Gardens, with the Gardens paying for the sidewalk portion in front of its property and Louisville Metro paying for all the other sidewalk sections.

Frankfort Avenue between River Road and Story Avenue will be closed to through traffic during construction, which may last until December 19.  Access to local businesses will continue. Drive carefully in the area!

Hamlet – Virtual Free Performance

Kentucky Shakespeare

For the past several years, the D9 office has sponsored Shakespeare in the Parks to bring a free production to D9 residents. This year was a little different, so Kentucky Shakespeare created a virtual production of Hamlet. Please enjoy this virtual performance by clicking here. This link will be available until the end of the year.

Halloween and COVID-19

Halloween will look different this year, as we all stay safe during a global pandemic.  Most residents on D9's Hillcrest Avenue have agreed not to have the large yard displays that promote so much foot traffic.  Many residents will not be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters because it will be difficult to socially distance.   The Courier-Journal wrote about Hillcrest's decision. Click here to read. 

The decisions are in keeping with Kentucky's Halloween Guidelines, which discourage traditional trick-or-treating.  That is especially important now, as COVID-19 cases are rising and Jefferson County has again entered the “red”, “critical” category. The graphic below has some better ideas to celebrate the holiday while remaining safe.  


Halloween at the Mall Drive Thru – October 24


Load up your kids and prepare for a Halloween in Brown Park like you have never experienced before. Due to COVID-19 precautions, Halloween in Brown Park will not be held in Brown Park this year and it will look a little different.

The event will be held Saturday, October 24 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Mall St. Matthews. Enter off Bowling Blvd. onto Sherburn Lane and St. Matthews Police Department and event volunteers will guide attendees through the lot to the event.

This will be a fully touchless drive-thru experience for the attendees. At the beginning of the line volunteers will attach padded hooks (high weight capacity) over the car windows on the driver’s side to hold bags for kids trick-or-treating from the vehicle. Bags will be provided by title sponsor Baptist Health.

Vendors will put pre-packaged candy or non-food items into the bags using gloved hands from booth to booth as the car drives by. In order to limit contacts, attendees must always stay inside the car, and only the window where the candy bags will be hung should be partially open.

The Chamber of St. Matthews is limiting the event to one car per family and it is strongly recommended per the CDC and State guidelines that those inside the car are all from the same household. They will be offering Teal Pumpkin items for any child with an allergy. This project is designed to offer non-food treats for trick-or-treaters who may suffer from a food allergy. All those participating in the project will have a Teal Pumpkin displayed in their booth in some fashion.

Author and Historian Steve Wiser to Share Ghostly Tales at Virtual Event – October 27

Steve Wiser

The Peterson-Dumesnil House will host local author and historian Steve Wiser for an evening of tales about Louisville's historic and haunted homes on Tuesday, October 27th at 6:30 p.m. The free, 45-minute virtual event will be streamed live on the organization's Facebook page and will include an interactive Q&A session with Steve, as well as Halloween-themed giveaways for viewers.

During the presentation, Steve will visit different parts of the house and grounds as he shares ghostly tales from around Louisville. The program will highlight the legend of "The Lady in White," who has been observed for decades looking after and caring for the Peterson-Dumesnil House. An ethereal photograph of the house taken by Tim Miller graces the cover of Steve's book, Haunted Houses of Louisville.

Steve Wiser is a lifelong Louisville resident, historian, architect, and author. He has been involved with the Louisville Historical League since 1980, serving as President for several terms, and he is also a tour guide of Cave Hill Cemetery.
